SALUTING THE CLASS OF 2011

A New Beginning As you make a new beginning in your life, graduate, be aware of important things you didn’t learn in school: As you pursue your dreams, remember to take time to help and serve others even if doing so slows you down a little. As you explore and develop your unique talents, remain humble, realizing that your special abilities are gifts from God. As life hands you challenges, welcome them as ways to become smarter and stronger. As you acquire material things, know that your most important possessions are honesty, integrity, and the desire to make a difference. Congratulations, graduate. May your new path take you where you want to go and also bring you pleasant surprises! By Joanna Fuchs

DREAM BIG

If there were ever a time to dare, To make a difference To embark on something worth doing It is now. Not for any grand cause, necessarily But for something that tugs at your heart Something that is worth your aspiration Something that is your dream. You owe it to yourself To make your days count. Have fun. Dig deep. Stretch.

Dream big. Know, though, That things worth doing Seldom come easy, There will be times when you want to Turn around Pack it up and call it quits Those times tell you That you are pushing yourself And that you are not afraid to learn by trying. Persist. Because with an idea, Determination and the right tools, You can do great things. Let your instincts, your intellect And let your heart guide you. Trust. Believe in the incredible power Of the human mind Of doing something that makes a difference Of working hard Of laughing and hoping Of lasting friends Of all the things that will cross your path Next year The start of something new Brings the hope of something great. Anything is possible There is only one you And you will pass this way but once. Do it right.

DAUGHTRIDGE GAS COMPANY Congrats to all area graduates!! The world is waiting for you! Providing the gas needs of Halifax and Northampton Counties & Lake Gaston for over 80 years!
