By Scott Lee, 2016 MHEDA Chairman of the Board

By the time you sit down to read the second quarter MHEDA Journal, the holidays will be a distant memory. Most of us are welcoming the promise of longer days and warmer weather. I know the official start of the New Year was January 1st. However, I like to think of the first days of spring as my kick off to the New Year. This is especially noticeable the further north you live. There’s a buzz in the air and people are excited about coming out of hibernation. We are reminded the big orange thing in the sky can also provide warmth, not just light!
