January is here already and the start of a new year for all of us. This is the time of year where most of us look back on the past year and reflect on our accomplishments and plan for the coming year. I have been looking forward to the New Year with excitement.

Awesome! That is the only way I can explain the past two years as your president. As I hand over my presidency to John Sage, just taking a look at the last two years is wonderful.

February 2015

So how many of us are still working on our New Year’s resolutions? Can I get a show of hands?!! If you are like most of us, your to do list is an ever changing topic. It depends on the weather, time needed to complete, and what may have just hit the rotary oscillator (fan).

April 2015

April 2015

April is Fair Housing Month. Why is April the designated month that we observe this recognition of Fair Housing? On April 11th, 1968, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1968, an expansion of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The 1968 act expanded on previous acts and prohibited discrimination concerning the sale, rental, and financing of housing based on race, religion, national origin, sex,(and as amended) handicap, and family status. Title VIII of the Act is also known as the Fair Housing Act (of 1968).
