The Fall landscape begs us to slow down, take notice, appreciate, and wonder.  We too must do the same and take stock of our lives and the people who mean the most to us, whether it be family, friends, customers, employees, vendors, neighbors, or even perfect strangers…

A perfect stranger so selflessly fought for our freedoms.  A perfect stranger heeded the call to aid the helpless and annihilate the evil.  A perfect stranger gave their life, so we may have a better one.  “Freedom”, as it’s often said, “is never free.”.  Did you know of the 16.1 millioin WWII soldiers, only 1.7 million remain?  Seize the moment and honor our veterans each and every day by supporting one of the many, amazing service organizations, like the Wounded Warrior Project, HeroBox, Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, etc.  Sweeney’s has and is a proud partner of Green Care for Troops, a nationwide outreach program that connects local landscapers with men and women serving our country away from home.  You can read more about it here:

“In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned.  When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.”

-Mark Twain

Best wishes,
