If good news should be shared, great news ought to be shouted. Last December when I was visiting my son in New York, a restaurant server asked me where I was visiting from. Proudly I said, Idaho, North Idaho. The server smiled and said, tell me about it (As an aside, that’s a great question, and so much nicer than where’s that?!). I smiled and said, “North Idaho is full of amazing people. It’s the type of area where you know your neighbors and bump into people you know at the grocery store and out at events. There’s a sense of community pride."

I am honored to play a small part in supporting such a giving community.
