• The Madison Regatta returned in style after the previous year’s rainout.
• We elected some new folks to state and county offices.
• We welcomed visitors to our community for a summer filled with fairs and
And, perhaps, most important, we experienced personal milestones. We started
families. We lost loved ones. We celebrated birthdays and anniversaries. We
graduated from school and moved to the next stage in our lives. We fought. We
made up. We laughed together. We cried together.
As we go forward into a new year and a new journey, it’s important to make
resolutions. After all, each of us has room for personal growth.
Some of us will retrieve exercise equipment from the back of the closet and work
back into shape.
Some of us will resolve to save a little money every month instead of spending it
on something we may not need.
Some of us will muster the courage to confront old fears.
One thing is clear ... If we want to improve on our successes from 2014, we must
resolve to help each other.
While many of us have more than we will ever need, there are those whose needs
are more than we can imagine.
We must leave no man, woman or child behind. Find a way to make a difference
whether its helping out at a food bank, starting a community garden or checking on
Making a difference in the lives of others will help make 2015 a great year.
Happy New Year.
