Infrequently Answered Questions

I get many questions directed my way – via email, at the grocery store, via social media, at school events, and even as phone messages. It is difficult to share these questions – and answers – with our community as a whole. From time to time we will post Infrequently Answered Questions in an attempt to clarify rumors, provide interesting information, and simply “get the work out.” This is our community; we are partners.
