Rick Clarke, Tom Austin, and the on-site crew from All City Fence deserve a big shout-out for their outstanding work installing gates and fencing around the NVC parking lot. Everything works wonderfully and has created a safer and more secure atmosphere within the NVC complex. Lots of feedback from our renters, visitors, guests, and members about this. There were many calls and on-site meetings with Rick and Tom, who went the extra mile to ensure we covered every concern and requirement.
Finally, keep our service members and members of the foreign service stationed overseas in your thoughts and prayers. It's not much fun being away from family and friends over the holidays, but I always took satisfaction in knowing that I had a small part in preserving and protecting the freedoms we enjoy today. Thanks to all of you for supporting our military and foreign service cadre too. Stay safe, be kind, and remember "Freedom is the oxygen of the soul" (author unknown).
