August Chairman's Message
Summertime is family time.
With school out, we all tend to spend more time with our families in the summer. We take the kids on vacation, splashing with them in South Padre or hanging on during rides at Fiesta Texas. Maybe we take care of grandkids while tired parents take an overdue couple’s trip. Maybe we spend a little more time with the older generation, listening to stories we hope to remember forever.
Now, as the heat reaches its August crescendo, the kids are going back to school. Everyone has used up their vacation time. Grandparents are empty nesting again. But the end of summer doesn’t have to mean less time together. Let’s squeeze in an after-school ice cream with the little ones. Let’s FaceTime our college kids, take in a movie, or have a weekend cookout. Let’s take the kids to the park in the morning or walk the dog in the evening. Let’s take opportunities every day to show our family and friends just how much we love and appreciate them.
In the midst of a sometimes-scary world, there is nothing like the joy of spending time with those we love. I wish that for all of you.
