Sensational September, My Friends,

Where has 2019 gone? It's already mid-September and a new school year has begun; teachers and students are high on anticipation for instruction and learning. Being an educator, I well know how tough and rewarding the job of teaching can be.
So, my friends who are in the academic profession, stay strong, be diligent (even though it will be trying at times) and always, always stay encouraged.
Before you know it, the holidays and the end of year will be here

Fall 2019 is filled with appearances and events near and dear to my heart.
Below see reminders of some upcoming events and new ones. I really would love to see you at any or all of them. (We will have a great time for great causes, I promise).

Please continue to look out for my monthly newsletters that will be sent to you directly.
Until Next Time,
I Remain Sincerely,
Aunt Hattie
