As we continue to maneuver through Covid, pockets of people continue to do what they can to keep the spirits of our community upbeat.  Their hope for a better tomorrow drive projects forward despite financial challenges and covid concerns.  If we continue to work together and support all projects, goals will be achieved.  Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world: indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead. 

Stay well friends, show kindness not division and reach out if you are in need of help.
