March Theme of the Month: INTEGRITY  
 Integrity is standing up for what you believe is right.  It is being honest and sincere with others and yourself.  Without integrity, no one would be able to trust each other to do what they say they are going to do.  Integrity is doing the right thing when no one is watching
