Historical Tidbit: 

St. Bridget's Fire

"A serious brush with disaster occurred on Sunday, March 5, 1893, when fire totally destroyed the town's Catholic church, St. Bridget's, which stood on the present site of the Public Library." 

The entire church was lost, but in the ashes, the tabernacle was found, and is still in use today at St John's Church. 
Stay tuned for more historical tidbits.

Congratulations to all of our graduates.
Now you head out to make your way. Yahoo!

My youngest, working on his career for a solid year now after graduation, got me talking about my own 21 year old career misadventures .. we both shook our heads in disbelief at what we didn't know that first year after graduation.

Since so much of it was just figuring life out, the Longest John's "Hoist Up the Thing" comes to mind.

Fresh out of college, with grades straight from Hell
I browsed for a trade at which I could excel
An ad for a ship in need of some manning
Men, sails, and purpose, but lacking a captain

What luck, says I, to find such good fortune!
A few white lies later, I ran down the pier
Bought me a coat and a cutlass or two
Jumped on the deck, and I yelled at the crew:

Hoist up the thing! Batten down the whatsit!
What's that thing spinning? Somebody should stop it!
Turn hard to port! (That's not port)
Now I've got it! Trust me, I'm in control!"
(c: David Robinson, Andrew Robert Yates, Jonathan Michael Peter Darley, Robert James Alexander Sattin 2020

We all have to figure out our own way. Very seldom is it without bumps and missteps.
We are never really in control. Best we can do is be true to ourselves and kind to others. Here's wishing you clear sailing!
