President's Message:     Happy 4th of July!
Team Experience:           Protected Tomorrows, Ehlert Financial Group & Forum Financial at the Games 

President's Message:

First and very important is to wish you all Happy 4th of July! It is a special time for many of us as we appreciate the freedom we have each and every day. 

Our team celebrated early this year. As a team, we volunteered at the Illinois Special Olympics Summer Games. Our entire team, from Protected Tomorrows, Ehlert Financial Group, and Forum Financial went to the games to experience the event. 

To say it impacted each of our lives is an understatement. Rather than try to express how the different individuals felt, this issue is devoted to some of the comments we heard from our team.
To each and every one of you, I wish a wonderful 4th of July. I hope you also get to do something special that you will never forget!
Mary Anne Ehlert, 
President & Founder
