“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” I can hear Andy Williams singing his signature Christmas carol—it is one of my favorites. “With the kids jingle belling and everyone telling you, ‘Be of good cheer,’ it’s the most wonderful time of the year! … There is no holiday season I enjoy more than I do Christmastime. The sights, the sounds, the smells—all invoke memories of past celebrations with family and friends and promises of those to come. Traditional remembrances, both secular and religious, round out the experience as the new year approaches.
As we come to the end of the year, inevitably our focus will begin to shift toward our goals for 2023. But before we make our New Year’s resolutions, let’s pause to look back and appreciate all that 2022 has brought us. Building, dreaming, and improving are the tenets of our community and this year did not disappoint.
