We ended September with a fun trip to the International Bluegrass Music Association’s World of Bluegrass in Raleigh. John and Peggy Harris were our hosts and we enjoyed a weekend of great music and entertainment. Thanks to John and Peggy for arranging […]
Welcome to September! Our Labor Day celebrations remind us fall is just around the corner. As we reluctantly say goodbye to summer, we need to remember that we’re heading for the peak portion of our hurricane season. As I mentioned last year, it is the perfect time to make sure that we have our hurricane preparedness plans in place and ready to […]
Don’t look now but we’re on the downward side of 2019! Assuming that you’re reading this on August 1, you have 146 shopping days until Christmas! Now that I’ve gotten your attention, we have lots of fun CFMC activities to keep you busy until the jolly ole man comes around. We wrapped up July with […]
