The Spirit of Christmas

“For the spirit of Christmas knows no race, no creed, no clime, no limitation of time or space.

Yes, the spirit of Christmas breathes an eternal message of peace and goodwill to all men.” 

President Franklin D. Roosevelt

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

During this special time of the year, I am filled with joy and gratitude for all of our blessings.

Michael, Max, Chief and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a joyous Holiday Season!

My family had a wonderful Christmas, but too many others were not so fortunate or so insulated this year.

My heart goes out to those in the hospital and their families, and to the healthcare workers and first responders who are dealing nonstop with COVID.

Please share the Christmas Spirit’s message of goodwill by following the recommendations of public health professionals. Please practice social distancing and wear a face mask!
