Today we begin our Independence Week of honoring our heroines. This is the third year we have celebrated our Independence by honoring military women who have died for it.
We start with Hildy in honor of Army Spc. Hilda Clayton, 22, of Augusta, Georgia. Spc. Clayton died from injuries sustained when a mortar malfunctioned during an Afghan National Army training exercise in Qaraghahi, Afghanistan. She was assigned to the 55th Signal Company and the 21st Signal Brigade in Fort Meade, Maryland, and was providing Combat Camera support at the time of her death. She is survived by her husband, Chase Clayton.
Please remember our special Fourth of July Wednesday schedule: 10:30am classe only on Wednesday, July 4.
It's also Foodie Friday and it just wouldn't be kind to send you into a holiday weekend without something delicious to cook. Please enjoy this fantastic recipe from Eat, Drink, Paleo for Ensalada Rusa, a Spanish take on a classic potato salad. This is the perfect side to bring to any party you're invited to this weekend (or next weekend, or for our FOURTH Anniversary Party on July 15th.)
