December 2018 Newsletter
Merry & Bright!
The LDC has had quite a year! We moved into the office on Race Street last February and now feel quite at home. 2019 will be LDC's 40 Anniversary year and we look forward to sharing and celebrating this milestone with the community.

May everyone be blessed with health and happiness in 2019!

As we go about the days of this holiday season, with our lists of items and appointments, may we all remember to stop and pause. Reflect upon the hours that passed and the year that was. Slow down to remember the little things that impacted your life, as well as the big changes that occurred. May you and those you care for feel connected, present and peaceful.
