Between a pandemic, an overly active hurricane season, and other events (that we are told in the South not to discuss in mixed company) I know that many of you are ready to put this one in your rearview mirror. The changing of the seasons from hotter to hot, the blooming of camellias, and the quieting of our beaches comes ushers in a renewal of sorts… a renewal of your ASBPA membership for 2021 that is!
