Summer is flying by at warp speed, and here we are already with kids and teachers returning to school at the end of the month! I’m certainly not ready for summer to end yet, and I feel quite sure they are not either! A huge note of thanks to all those involved in educating our children. It’s such an important task and one that I’m sure parents have a new appreciation for after having to deal with virtual learning. It’s wonderful to have all the options available now, so whether you stick to virtual or are looking forward to returning to in-person learning, we hope you have an amazing school year!
I was so excited to start our Kids’ Morning Out events back in July, but the weather had other plans. The NC Tennis folks were doubly disappointed we had to cancel because of the rain Hurricane Elsa brought. We hope to reschedule a tennis event in the fall, so stay tuned for that! With vacations and everyone’s busy schedule, we will not have an event in August but are looking forward to one of our most popular Kids’ Morning Out events at Salem Gymnastics & Swim in September. Beth Morphis and her staff do an incredible job with multiple stations set up for not only fun but to challenge the kids with new skills, as well! Don’t forget to bring your swimsuit if you’d like to give their pool a try! Kids under three must be accompanied by an adult in the pool.
Our August cover features Cannon Wealth Management. There’s no better time than the present to take charge of your financial future. You might say “I don’t have enough money to bother with a financial management professional,” but you would be wrong. Small savings now can be turned into quite a nest egg for your golden years and, trust me, they get here before you know it! Lots of great articles and event information are in the August issue as well!
Wishing everyone a safe and happy August and a wonderful start to the school year for all the students and teachers!
