It seems like just yesterday. The devastation of the place we love and the place we call home. Those first pictures that made us all feel like it would never be the same. And while it won't ever be the same, signs of progress make us feel better, and maybe even good. The opening of Jenkinson's, just days away, makes me feel good.

When we think of Jenk's, we all have memories that race to the top of our minds. That's the beauty of a place like Jenks. It means different things to different people, but it means something to everyone. For me, it's walking the boardwalk with Diane just soaking in the summer fun, doing some people watching and reminding each other just how lucky we are to live where we do.

So when I saw Matt's article about the Jenkinson's opening dates, it made me smile. I know there's so much still to do, but I'm happy to see a good start.
