The holiday season is upon us, and in all the hustle and bustle of activity that comes with it, I would like us to remember four "F" words that hopefully mark this season for all of us. Family, Friends, Freedom, and Faith. Family - Turning our hearts to home is important for all of us. Remembering and caring for those who care for us is one of the important hallmarks of this season. Friendship, fellowship, and kindred spirits are priceless, and we hope that this coming year brings even more of it to our SAR gatherings. Freedom , as we know, is never free, and as descendants of those who fought and died to establish our country, we want to remain vigilant against complacency in this day and age, and remember the faithful, living and deceased, whose sacrifice enables us to remain free. And finally faith, belief in something greater than ourselves. Whether our faith encompasses religion, or ideals, patriotism, or faith in the common good, we can all take time to nurture it in this holiday season.

Don't forget our next SAR Meeting - January 19, 9:30-11:00 at Andersons in Buellton.

Happy Holidays - Ron
