    The pools are filled with people and summer is off to a great start. The weather has been very cooperative and hopefully it will continue. A few rainy days are great for the gardens and for staying inside to play board games but the sunshine makes for fulfilled days outside. Have a great Memorial Day full of memories and fun.

But to whomever had a name on the ballot, it was important. It will make all the difference as to whether that name will be on the ballot this fall.
