A Season to Celebrate Those We Love and Remember and Honor Those Lost As we make our way through spring and into summer, we find ourselves celebrating those important people in our lives, and honoring those who sacrificed their lives for us. Mother’s Day, always held the second Sunday in May, is May 14 this year, while Father’s Day is June 18, the third Sunday of June. These days are set aside for us all to take the time to truly reflect back on all our parents, or guardians, have done for us—and continue to do. Motherhood and fatherhood can feel like thankless callings at times, but know that your role is so important in your child’s life, and you are raising those who will lead others one day—whether families of their own, a business, a nonprofit. The sky's the limit, and it starts at home.
On Monday, May 29, we honor and remember those who lost their lives serving our nation in order to keep this place we call home a land of the free. Our families, our communities, our nation, will forever be indebted to those men and women who served selflessly for all of humanity.
In this issue of Sandpoint Living Local, our team at Like Media continues its mission to share positive news and stories with our readers. And our May/June 2023 edition is no different. In this issue, we once again put the spotlight on one outstanding teacher and two exceptional students in the district. You'll be inspired by the story of the "Family Tree," which can be found in the Healing Garden at Bonner General Health. Discover MAD Energy, based right here in Sandpoint, and the clean energy solutions they’re developing. And … it's that time again to get Lost in the '50s, as this beloved event returns the third weekend of May to downtown Sandpoint. Read more about this year’s CHAFE 150, which is right around the corner. Check out the other wonderful events making their way to Sandpoint to close out spring and welcome summer. Plus so much more!
