Derek had the floor since he owns the umbrella. He shared quotes from famous people and asked if we could name them. (Answers at the bottom of this bulletin)
1. "Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself." 
2. "I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning to sail my ship."
3. "Everything you can imagine is real."
4. "If you're going through hell keep going."
5. "Well done is better than well said."
6. "Laughter is an instant vacation."
Derek remains fine free during the time he owns the umbrella!
