Note to all visitors: Thank you for visiting. We apologize that the web site isn’t working the way it was originally designed. Because of technical difficulties with the computer program supplier (beyond our control)…many of these pages look pretty goofed up. The content is okay, but the formatting is incorrect.  We are in the process of a complete re-design of the site. Stay Tuned.

The preliminary views of the new site look GREAT!  We can’t wait to show you too!
