Details to follow but if similar to last year it will start at 5pm at the Riviera bridge (intersection of Lucerne and Riviera) Dress your cart up as much as you want, some years it gets pretty extravagant! You can also follow the facebook page here for updates.

Book of the Month

This past month a special book came across my desk, while it is a short read it is inspiring. “Make Your Bed Little Things That Can Change Your Life..and Maybe the World” written by Admiral William H McRaven (Retired). Admiral McRaven combines his personal experiences as a Navy Seal and US Naval Commander with pragmatic thoughts on how to improve yourself with just small changes. In fact this book was inspired by a commencement address he gave at the University of Texas in 2014. Click to see this commencement address. I think this is a great book, in particular for our kids to read as they are going into high-school. I am always seeking new books to read so if you have a favorite let me know!
