I am periodically updating my FB page with information.
 
We are a tightknit, strong community. We all need to do whatever we can to support our local businesses and restaurants. Order in if possible. Buy gift cards. If you are now working from home and can, continue using local services responsibly. If you don't need the services but can continue to pay them this could be the difference in their economic survival, so please consider doing what you can.
 
As always please reach out with any questions, ideas, thoughts. 
 
If you need something or have a concern just reach out. I am most responsive by text but email and calling work as well.
 
Stay Healthy!
