Coffee with the President,

"Ho! Ho! Ho!" I can still hear Santa making merry in the Hunt Room of   The White Hart Inn Sunday night, and the squeals of hundreds of small children waiting in anticipation for the big moment...and the cookies! I can still smell the cookies! What a beautiful evening it was, inside and out, with the Salisbury Brass Band rocking us around a beautifully strung Christmas Tree, thanks to our members at  Peerless Tree Service LLC! And the Parade of Lights done by  Lakeville Hose Company was the best one ever! Last weekend's Hometown Holidays celebration was a feast for the senses. We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did! One guest was so inspired she offered to volunteer next year! Slam dunk!

Thank you to all the elves who baked cookies for Sunday's Hometown Holidays:

And thank you to the Adopt-A-Tree crews:

Best Practices for Selling your Medical Practice
With all the upheaval in the insurance market, many smaller private physician groups are either selling or consolidating.
