A Thought for the Month

We all know about the celebrations in December, including Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and Christmas – but did you also know that it is:

  • World Aids Day (1st)
  • International Day of People with Disability (3rd)
  • National Cookie Day (4th)
  • Pearl Harbor Day (7th)
  • Human Rights Day (10th)

Please make this a December to remember – spend time with loved ones and always remember to love yourself.
