November 2018 Newsletter
Feeling Thankful...
In our age of hurried obligations and constant motion from one task to another, it's important to slow down and devote some time to simply being grateful.

Thanksgiving is a time to not only connect with our family and friends, but to recognize and appreciate our relationship to co-workers and those in our community who enrich our lives.

The LDC is grateful to our staff, Board, and all our borrowers, past and present, who continue to allow us to be a part of a thriving community and participate in its economic growth.

“For one minute, walk outside, stand there, in silence. Look up at the sky and contemplate how amazing life is.” -Anonymous
