 THE DAVIS ISLANDS NEWSLETTER

Greetings and welcome to the May issue of the Islands View newsletter.

This month there are two events worth participating in.  The first is occurring nearby at Curtis Hixon park and the second is at Peter O. Knight Airport.
A special thanks to Islands residents who work so hard to keep our community clean. The Coastal Cleanup was a success!
Hope everyone has a great May and we will see you around the Islands!
  Sig

Book of the Month

This month one of the books I pulled off my shelf is quite possibly in my list of top three favorite books.  “How to Stop Worrying and Start Living” by Dale Carnegie.
Today, we unfortunately hear stories about people and particularly young folks that are having a hard time coping with the challenges life presents. While this book is not a cure all it certainly gives practical techniques as well as thought provoking statements that help to expel the fear we might feel. Fear that at times can hold us back.
After reading this book I encourage you to pass it along to someone who might be going through a trial, low self confidence or fear of the unknown.
