One year ago this month my family and I were fortunate enough to go to the Inaguaration. You know the one, the one that nobody went to according to the mainstream media. Every American would be proud to witness first hand the "Peaceful Transition of Power". Apparently, the peaceful part ended even before
the swearing in. For months before the election up until this day the press has misrepresented, twisted and lied about anything Trump.

Let's look back at just a few of President Trumps accomplishments during his first year in office. His quick and decisive action to Syria's attacks on their own people showed the world immediately that he was not the "no action" President of the past. His appointment of Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court was one of the
first of his campaign promises that he implemented. His unprecedented visit to the Middle East and China set the stage for better communication on the world front. Between eliminating so many of Obama's Presidential Orders and tough talk to N. Korea he was able to get the biggest tax cut in decades passed to help the American middle class with higher wages and better jobs. Manufacturing jobs are coming back to the US and many corporations giving their workers a bonus and higher pay. The stock market has set multiple record highs and still the mainstream media attack, attack, attack. What will this President do next, they ask? Well, the answer is: Make American Great Again!

Mary Carter, President


Your Sunshine Chairman is requesting that you keep her informed of any and all occasions that need to be acknowledged by a card. Such things as births, deaths, marriages, health issues, happy and sad, all deserve recognition. If I don't hear from you, someone who could use a bit of cheering up would be overlooked. Let's don't let that happen. Just drop me a line or email me.

Many thanks,
Dodie Brocken
