Laughter. Education. Legacy. A PLACE TO CALL HOME. Sometimes it takes a storm—a job loss, an illness, a terrible economy—to help shape our perspective. To help us determine what is really important in life, to discover what are our true blessings. So this is what we celebrate in a year of challenge. Faith in the Risen Jesus Christ. Our families and friends who have loved and supported us. An education that has equipped us for service in Christ’s Kingdom. A legacy to which each of us, in large ways or small, has contributed by virtue of being part of the Malone community. This year, won’t you be a blessing and come “Home” to celebrate with us?
