A Happy May Message From Joel


May is a month of holidays and celebrations, from May Day and Cinco de Mayo to Mother’s Day and of course, the official start of summer, Memorial Day.

Although this is the second May affected by the pandemic, there are signs of normalcy all around us. Restaurants are accepting Mother’s Day reservations and families for the first time in over a year will gather to mark the day. Hope is in the air as parents plan summer vacations, and amusement parks reopen.

If anything, the pandemic has taught us to appreciate time spent with loved ones and to celebrate the simple joys of life. So happy month of May, and don’t forget to file your taxes by May 17th!
