Monthly Newsletter           First Half of Month
October 2017
Pumpkin spice and everything nice... October is finally here. Let's happily welcome autumn and all of its obligatory festivities to share in with those around us - pumpkin carving, apple picking, and of course, dressing up for Halloween. It is the month where the fall season really begins to show its true colors and nature's transition begins to take its course from green to gold leaves and warmer to cooler temperatures. October is the month that brings energy for the acceptance of new challenges, celebration of achievements already made, and excitement for future opportunities.

"I'm so glad live in a world where there are Octobers."
- Anne of Green Gables, LM. Montgomery
