It seems both impossible and incredible that we are now one year into a world pandemic, 2020 was not a year for the faint of heart., COVID-19 hit our nation hard with a jolt that has forever changed our lives. We implore you to wear your mask, stay six feet apart while you practice social distancing, and wash your hands, these have been constant messages that we all must adhere to in order to curb the spread in our community. As we close out year one of the pandemic, we genuinely think we have the fortitude and perseverance to turn things around working as a community to make sure we continue to follow the COVID-19 guidelines to assist our fellow neighbors in our hours of need.
