See You Saturday in Sumneytown

            It seems that people grow more and more divisive each day and few inside the politically elite circles seem to care about actually bringing folks together.  They're too busy stoking the fires of mistrust, confusion, and conflict.

            Instead of actually doing something good, they're too busy trying to incite arguments or worse on social and mainstream media in their feeble attempts to obtain "Capitol Hill Cred" for their next election.  Name-calling, finger-pointing, and bullying instead of showing the guts and intelligence to look someone in the eye, shake their hand and say "let's talk."  Or elected official who try to bully opponents.

            It is up to the people of small-town communities like ours to roll up their sleeves and show those on the hard-left and hard-right what it means to show a sense of community.

            Major cities in this great country are counting their record number of deaths from criminal activities inside their borders while pushing a "defund the police" narrative.  Here, we still show pride in our communities.

            The pride shows in the volunteer groups and organizations that serve our communities.  It shows in the quality of service our fire, police, and emergency services give us every day.

            It shows in our willingness to encourage others to follow rules and regulations rather than bully them into submitting to do it "our way or the highway."

            I hope you take advantage of our Night Out in the Community, to be held this Saturday from 3 – 7 p.m. at St John's Lutheran Church in Sumneytown.

            Attend safely and show your support for all of the groups who have donated their time to give you the opportunity for a night out, seeing friends and neighbors you may have missed over the last year, and receive an education on what these organizations do and how they can help you and how you can help them.

            And if you happen to see a donation jar sitting on a table somewhere, drop a buck or two in it and show them that you are a supporter of their work.

            I hope to see you in Sumneytown on Saturday.
