With the weather warming so does my desire to spend more and more time outside. I often joke that one day I may just put a chair and table out in the parking lot at the office so I can work in the sunshine. I don’t think the weather is there yet, but warmer days are ahead. Are you looking for something fun to do outside? Again, this year the Young Leader Committee is hosting the Annual Bruce Johnson Memorial Farm to Farm 5K/10K Run on April 1st. This is one of my favorite events. A few important dates to remember, if you plan to participate:
