NEORSD Information

Message from Mayor Blackwell:

 

June has always been a popular month for weddings! The Romans named June after Juno, the queen of the gods and patroness of marriage and weddings. Retrieved from http://wonderopolis.org/wonder/howdid-the-months-of-the-year-get-their-names/

 

Before becoming Mayor, I had once worked at University Hospitals for a President and Chief Medical Officer and was responsible for all of his

physician events, which turned into a small event planning business for me; several of these events included wedding planning. During this season of weddings, later this month my family and I will travel to Virginia Beach for the first time to attend our  Pastor’s, daughter’s wedding.

 

In addition, my birthday is in the month of June and it is a BIG ONE! However, I am not saying “YIKES”, I am saying “Thank God for keeping me.” I have had some disappointment, heartache and failure, but for most of my life, God has shown me great favor. So I

take the time to thank God often, I pray daily; attend Church weekly and try to live a life

pleasing to God in all that I do and say.

The month of June’s stone is a Pearl and the Flower a Rose, both of which happen to be my

favorite. The Pearl Stone is elegant, highly valued, an object of beauty and a metaphor for

something rare, fine, admirable and valuable. While, the Rose is known for its beauty and

fragrance and red roses are most popular and a symbol of love; I personally love yellow

roses, representing joy and friendship, but also because yellow is my favorite color. Therefore,

I have concluded that being born in the month of June clearly defines what I like and

me.

Lastly, the warm sun of June; longer days, shorter nights, soft breezes, schools and universities

summer breaks begin in June well before Tuesday, June 20, 2017, the first day of

summer! Be sure to enjoy the outdoors and a slower pace in the month of June.
