June 2014 – Letter from our Editor

060114.gtpHello Everyone!

Welcome back to GTP as we kick off the summer season. It’s time to hang out with friends and family, fire up the grill and enjoy fun in the sun. The kids are out of school and families are planning vacations and taking trips for some much needed R & R. There are also some really special summer camps on the Coast that offer some extraordinary experiences for your youngsters. Our #1 picks are being offered at the Mary C and the Marine Education Center in beautiful Ocean Springs. These programs are so innovative and so much fun, you will want to sign up your kids for everything!

Guest journalist, Melody Worsham, gets you up to speed on the Mental Health Association of South Mississippi (MHASM). June is a very busy month for this dynamic organization, featuring some great events that you won’t want to miss. The “Don’t Worry Be Happy Mon” Batchelor and Batchelorette auction will be a night to remember at the IP Casino Resort Spa, followed by the 2014 Community Wellness Conference at the Biloxi Civic Center the next week.

Check out our ten commandments for personal finance to help you get on track this summer and don’t miss how you can keep your kids safe and well during outside play as the temperatures soar.

Congratulations to the LSU Tigers baseball team who won the 2014 SEC Championship! Geaux Tigers!
