Island News of the Week:
Memorial Day (click link for a refresher) "to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service" - can be a sad time for some of us; it can also be a time to reflect, honor ...and to celebrate those that have sacrificed so much for this wonderful country that we live in. Please consider proudly flying your flags, giving thanks and taking a moment to pay a simple act of kindness forward this weekend (here on the island, the city or wherever this email finds you). Be safe, have fun and enjoy this little slice of paradise that many of us are blessed to call "home".
