  • State of my marriage address

    Note: On May 3, my husband and I will be married 41 years. I’ve adapted this column from 2009.

    Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg juniors and seniors spent last Wednesday morning sprucing up the landscaping in front of the Anderson Senior Center.

    “The kids from CAL are just another example of how some very simple acts of kindness can make a big difference at the senior center,” director Steve Carmichael said. “When given the opportunity and knowing there’s a need, the support we get from young people like these and others makes you value the life we have in Lawrenceburg even more.”
