NEWS & NOTES

As we wind down the first semester, I want to thank you all again for everything you do. We have many successes to celebrate and much to look forward to in the new year. With our two-week break just a few days away, this week promises to be very exciting! It will be great to see everyone this Thursday afternoon at Manuels restaurant to celebrate the holiday season together.


I hope you all enjoy your time off and have a safe and happy break. Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
