I was just looking at my calendar and it seems my work week especially light on appointments. I would expect that a lot of folks are taking vacation during the Fourth of July week. I’m looking forward to being home Saturday, July 4th, as we celebrate our country’s independence with our friends in our neighborhood.
Unfortunately, I will be traveling the next weekend and will be unable to attend the celebration on Saturday, July 11th commemorating the completion of the latest phase of the Downtown Centerville revitalization. As part of the festivities, this year’s Leadership Hickman Class has organized the burial of a time capsule in the lawn in front of the Hickman County Justice Center (former site of the Hickman County High School and Fairview Academy). The class gathered artifacts from across the county, including essays from students at East Hickman and Centerville. I will be far from Hickman County that day, but my thoughts for a more happy and prosperous community in the future will be with them.
