Dear Friends and Neighbors,
May is traditionally the month in which we honor our mother and our country on Mother’s Day and Memorial Day respectively. It is a time when we clean house, tend gardens and prepare for the summer. But nothing will prepare you for the tenacity of retired Cpl. Jonathan Merchant, a disabled Army veteran who trains for triathlons.
In this issue, you will meet caregivers who are walking history, committed to giving back to their community and two young Mansfield residents, Adam Huff and Madison Mullins, who in their very different ways are realizing their own talents and potential.
As we prepare for the summer months, take a moment to read about and admire the kind of neighbors we have. May truly is the month where beautiful things (and beautiful people) bloom!
