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
