    Thought for the week: Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.

    I will be taking over the position of public relations for

    Sunrise Volunteers. In the next few weeks, I will be going over history of how the Volunteers got started and I will be interviewing volunteers on why volunteering is important to them.

    I am sure not ready for the cold temps to move in and definitely won’t be ready for the time change either.

    Thought for the week: Instead of causing chaos and rocking someone else’s boat, you need to row your own.

    Another Lincoln Days is in the books. It was beautiful weather on Saturday. I went for a couple of hours and visited with Regina Dobson and Joyce Devers at CreekFront Park. I watched some of the pioneer games at CreekFront. I hated that rain moved in for Sunday.

    This Friday night is the big football game against Elizabethtown. I hope it is an easy game. Good luck Hawks and make us proud.
