On the night of Wednesday, January 10th, I walked into a room full of beautifully dressed businessmen and women, government officials and their families. People were talking and laughing while drinking their beverages and enjoying the event hall of the Cherokee Run Club House. The event, A Celebration of Community was exactly that, Community.

I gave it a try and was amazed at the outcome.Read More
