I’m not sure how we arrived in the middle of May so quickly. As Hopkins County celebrates this week of graduations, endings, beginnings, and new dreams, it’s again easy to love this place we live. How thankful we can be that summer teases us already with sunny afternoons and captivating blue skies. Summer tends to conjure happiness, and I’m thankful it is here. To those graduating from high school this week… enjoy this time. Spend this summer with your friends and family and look forward to the exciting adventures that are headed your way. This will be one of your favorite times in life. Congratulations on all your hard work!
