Honoring Our Veterans

VetsIn November I had the pleasure of sharing an afternoon with more than 100 veterans and their families at our annual Veterans Day Luncheon. Together we celebrated their service and shared thoughts and prayers for those still deployed across the world. I was humbled to be among these true American heroes and their families for just a few hours.

My sincere thanks again this year go to Rick Colella and his team at the Forest Hills Fire Department for all they did to make this event so enjoyable. I am looking forward to seeing everyone again next year.

If you are a veteran or know someone who is, please call the Forest Hills office and provide your contact information so that we may send you an invitation to join us next year.

Visiting with our Seniors

SeniorI had the pleasure to recently visit many of our area senior centers and talk with folks about the issues impacting them and the ideas they have for helping our community.

I enjoyed my time at the Greenfield, Homewood and Market Centers and look forward to visiting many more locations across the area in the weeks to come.

Thanks to everyone who joined me for these events.
