lemonade... good news from newport  

november 2012

SallyAnne Santos

Hi Everyone!


Welcome to the November issue of lemonade! Today we have many reasons to be thankful, including how relatively well Newport fared versus Hurricane Sandy, thankful that we have the right to vote, and thankful that the election season will soon be over!  


So in this month that features Thanksgiving, let's focus not just on giving thanks, but also on giving back. I'll offer a few suggestions in this newsletter, but we are surrounded by good causes and the charity options are endless. It's easy, just find one that is meaningful to you and give whatever you can.


Thank YOU!
