Weekly Publisher Note🌹May 30-June 6. 2021

May 30, 2021

Welcome all,

I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend. Are you getting together with family and friends for a barbeque or extra time to work around the house? While Memorial Day gives many of us an extra day off it is important that we commemorate all the loved ones we have lost by their fighting for our country. These individuals have selflessly fought for each and every one of us. I am forever grateful for all of these heroes. I appreciate their sacrifices, their pride for our country, their tireless acts while in the service and beyond while keeping all of us safe from harm. Thanks to the families that are honoring a lost loved one but also thanks to all that continue to fight for our country. Check out our Memorial Day Events Guide HERE.

Have a wonderful week.

Veterans are a symbol of what makes our nation great, 

and we must never forget all they have done to ensure our freedom.

Hi, I'm Erika.  I'm originally from New England and moved to Carlsbad almost 5 years ago.  My family and I are enjoying the weather, laid back beach community and lots of family fun here.  When I am not watching my son's hockey games, or dance routines, you will find me exploring tidepools at the beach with my family.

Hi, I'm Jodi. I am the mom to 3 adults (1 son and 2 daughters), 2 grandsons and 2 dogs (a Labradoodle-Jeter and a Goldendoodle-Diggs). I love spending time with them and you can typically find us together playing Cribbage or Carbles on the weekends. I am a hockey mom through and through. I have been to many states traveling with my family to watch my kids/grandkids play hockey, I love to support my kids and I love all the fun local events. I really enjoy my job with Macaroni Kid.
