I think that it is really important to give back in some way.  I decided to help with the Relay for life this year at the Local Board of Realtors.  We were really concerned last year about meeting our goal and we did well over.  I am more concerned this year because of the economy is even worse but I am staying optimistic to at least give it our best shot.  As far as our little town go's per ca pita we have constantly raised the most money.  I think that is amazing!  This year I thought of having a Run-Bike-Run Relay.  I got one of my good friends that is another Realtor involved because I know nothing about running or biking and its her passion.  We are hoping it turns out to be a big success. I am also selling the luminaria's.  If you want to donate or participate please contact me.  ...

 GOD BLESS THE USA & THE VETS! I called my brother and sister-in-law to thank them for my freedom!  He said your welcome and I would do it again if I had the chance.  I did not get to talk to Karen, she was marching in the parade today and my brother can not walk well due to an old injury.  She sent me a photo of all of those who were in todays festivities.  She was the only women?  I know she didn't care, she is a trooper!  They are both retired now from the Navy.  I don't know about you but we owe them all at least a thank you.  If you see someone today or any day that you know has fought for us be sure and thank them for your freedom.   Thanks to all who have served and is currently in the service.
