This is the time of year when families and friends gather to help a loved one celebrate one of the important milestones of life, graduation.

It can be from high school or college, a public or private school, but the sense of accomplishment — and perhaps relief — is the same.

Graduations are not to be taken lightly, although the smiles on the faces of those graduating may suggest otherwise. The hard work and lessons learned can pay off greatly in the years to come.

But that is not the sole reason for celebration. In and of itself, graduation day most likely will remain a cherished memory for the person graduating, a way to remember the journey that came before it and the path traveled after it, and all of those who helped along the way.

A hearty congratulations to all of our area graduates as they move on to the next phase of their lives.
