Voice of Freedom

All I have to say this week, is that it is COLD! I hope everyone is keeping warm. If you know of anyone that lives alone, give them a call or stop in for a quick visit just to see that they are OK.

In the meantime, stay warm, stay safe and be kind to your neighbor. God bless until next week.
