As we approach the New Year, let us reflect on all we have, those we love, and renew our spirits for whatever 2019 may bring. Let us hope for peace around the world, safety for our military as they defend our interests, both here as well as abroad, and prosperity for our Nation so that all may benefit. Let us pray that our National and State leaders act in our interests instead of their own. Mostly, let us be thankful for this beautiful Town, and renew our commitment to continue our efforts to make it even better. Happy New Year to all!
