  • Tell them thanks

    This is a special week. It's special because it's a week that recognizes those who chose careers that have allowed them to serve others. Not only is it National Nurses Week, but it's also National Police Week.

    How many of us will go through our lives without receiving some sort of help from at least one individual in both professions? Not many, we think.

    National Nurses Week occurs each year from May 6-12.
