Honors Continue for Champs

My apologies. I had a busy week. On the day I normally post the webpage, I had a eye appointment, followed an hour later by getting the chance to see my mother in person at Saluda Nursing Center for the first time in a year. It didn’t cross my mind that I had not posted the webpage until Sunday night. I guess a day or two posted is better than nothing. Thanks, Ralph
