The biggest thing this week was the Relay for Life. There was a big turn out for all events and I understand the money taken in was another milestone. I know Ely raised more money last year then some of the big cities. Good job Ely.

The other big event was the heat and I think we all  participated in that one.

The “No Hug” Rule

Sitting in his dorm room

When the person to much

And all that he was striving for

See you completely out of touch

He peers at the drawing

Of the big round yellow sun

And then he is reminded

Of just how far he’s come

From childhood to manhood

Fighting back to many of fear

Through trials and tribulations

Holding back many a tear

Knowing that being successful

Isn’t passing every test

And the only way to falter in life

Is by failing to do his best

And the biggest lesson he’s learned

One he did not learn in school

That it is okay, for even a man

To break the no rule
