Note from Charles Turner re: December Events

I would like to thank everyone who has helped get us off to a fantastic start for the 2010 – 2011 school years and want to take this time to wish everyone the Joy of the Holiday Season.

This is the time of year where we reassess and refocus – look at where we are and project where we want to be.  We celebrate and commemorate traditions with family and friends.  We reenergize the Village for the challenges ahead.

In his season of hope and love many of us take the time to return to the Villages where we were born and to celebrate the Village we have become part of today. Please note our December activity dates and we hope to see everyone as we celebrate – the Village.
