Hi folks ---
Welcome to the November issue of CPDR e-News!

 

What a month this is --- two extraordinary days on which to hit the pause button….and simply remember and reflect … and give thanks --- Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving! “On this Veterans Day, let us remember the service of our veterans, and let us renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much so that we can live free.” (Dan Lipinski). We honor all our military veterans and thank them for their service to our great country. We salute YOU on Veteran’s Day!

 

And all of us at CPDR wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving ---full of thankfulness, family and friends and good chow (of course….and especially pie!)
