February 12th Message from the Executive Director

Posted February 12th, 2018

I live in the woods. Sometimes I wish I could see the sweeping sunsets or feel the wind as it gathers speed, but overall I like be nestled among trees. I do see some wildlife, but I am always astounded that, in the winter, my yard is covered in tracks.

February 5th Message from the Executive Director

Posted February 5th, 2018

New Year Message from the Executive Director

Posted January 10th, 2018

I love the holidays as they give most people at least a couple days to recharge, relax and reflect – but then I like equally the opportunity that a fresh new year offers.
