fraternize and golf after a year of
"shutdown". I sincerely hope this
will be a fun outing for all and maybe,
as we discussed before, make it an
annual event. Who knows, maybe we
can even get the guys from Greenville to

taking place across the country right

there is much good we can do in all
of our communities.
