Dear Friends, 

You are on my mind and I want to let you know we are working diligently to prepare our community for the worst possible scenario as each day brings more challenging news our way. A wise woman once told me, “Prepare for the worst and hope for the best!” HOPE is a powerful word and it is necessary to sustain us in times such as these. Faith in ourselves and in each other will go a long way in keeping us together.

“Faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.”
