EA Newsletter – March 2017

Letter From the Editor By Morgan Sandler As we are coming to these last issues of the newsletter this year, I cannot express how grateful I am for the amazing team that has been assembled to work with me!

I’d like them a little more if they weren’t cold and snow filled, but beggars can’t be choosers, as the saying goes. These are my favorite months because they’re different from the rest; there is a more giving, thankful, and generous atmosphere among people.
