Happy Father’s Day!  This is a great time to show every father and father figure how much they mean to you, and to also celebrate all the loving and caring men in your life. There are many ways to show them appreciation through gifts and cards, but the best gift of all is the three little words “I Love You.”

Birthday wishes to: Ella Jane Jordan on June 19; Eddie McDaniel on June 21; and Andy Drye on June 22.  If you would like a birthday or anniversary listed, do not hesitate to contact me.
