Happy Mother's Day!
Freedom comes with a price - let’s not forget to say Thank You to all our Veterans and their families on Memorial Day. We owe them our utmost respect and gratitude for all the sacrifices they made so that we can live in a free country. We also need to remember and say Thank You to all the service men and women that are currently serving throughout the world and hope that they will be home soon.

Construction Progress - We are in the final construction phase for the new building.  Thank you everyone who has contributed so far. We still need to close a small gap in the funding to complete the job. So it is time to buy those bricks if you haven’t already. Here is a look at the latest from the construction site. The roof is on, windows are in and it won't be long before we are putting in our Pathway to Success!
