News and Announcements

Welcome to the 2019 Year of Promise...

This year brings us continued opportunities to fulfill our goals and dreams. The Helpful Handbook for 2019 recommends we take note of the following in this New Year:
Do the Right thing!
Get rid of anything that is not helpful, peaceful, or joyful.
Time will eventually allow healing.
However good or bad a situation, it will change; therefore take heart and hold on.
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, and show up!
When you awake each morning, you're alive; choose to be thankful!
Be assured that you are loved and needed; your life is full of purpose.
Know that the best is yet to come!

Take care of you, take care of each other, take care of e3...
