Notes from Steve

I was in Des Moines with long-term friends this past weekend. I laughed to the point of tears several times - this doesn’t happen enough. A lot of our stories we told this weekend were from school days or when we were just starting out. Back then, none of us...

Greg's Greeting

Yesterday I, along with other senior leaders and Sara Goemaat, attended the funeral of Amy McDaniel’s father-in-law. It was a beautiful ceremony honoring the life of a true family man.

Amy's Reflections

“Traditions are our roots and a profile of who we are as individuals and who we are as a family. They are our roots, which give us stability and a sense of belonging - they ground us.” ~ Lidia Bastianich As one of our annual traditions before school, I took...
