Good luck to the Blue Wave Football team as they take on Eastside tonight.  We are cheering for you!  Go Blue Wave!

You may notice that our flag is flying at half-staff today in honor of first responders and others who gave of themselves in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy that occurred 19 years ago today.  In a remembrance event, President Barack Obama said, “Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11.”

Please stand for the pledge: I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Have a great weekend, Blue Wave!
