'Our Debt to the Heroic Men and Valiant Women in the Service of Our Country Can Never Be Repaid. They Have Earned Our Undying Gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.' - President H.S. Truman 
 
As many of us know, May is a month full of holidays, graduations, parties, and travel. Congratulations are certainly in order for the class of 2016! Celebrations and recognition for this month include National Teacher Day, Small Business Week, Mother's Day, National Brother's Day, Armed Forces Day, National Burger Day (veggie or salmon for me, but YUM), and Memorial Day...whew! 

Sending my best for a great start to your summer,
