Happy September –

Hope you had a great summer – we had several family, fun, and community events that were fantastic.

Hope you were able to enjoy fun and sun with your family and friends.

Now it’s time to get back to work. Let’s try to finish this year strong.

Remembering September

Whenever September comes around
There’s a difference in the air

It’s hard to fathom what it is
You just somehow know it’s there

It may be days that are cooler
Or the activity of different birds

But there’s an exciting anticipation
That’s difficult to put into words

Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas
The upcoming holiday cheer

It may mean the closing of summer
Or the nearing end of another year

No matter what the reason
We have cause to remember September

September – by Hilaire Belloc

Lo! a ripe sheaf of many golden days
Gleaned by the year in autumn’s harvest ways,
With here and there, blood-tinted as an ember,
Some crimson poppy of a late delight
Atoning in its splendor for the flight
Of summer blooms and joys­
This is September.
