It has been a challenging year for everyone in 2020, especially local business owners and entrepreneurs. At this time last year, we never imagined this new normal characterized by physical distancing and face mask-wearing. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March, it forced local businesses to adapt unlike ever before.

As we continue to feel the impacts, these holidays are going to be a bit different than usual. Everyone must do their part by wearing a mask and respecting physical distancing measures in public, as well as minimizing your private gatherings. We encourage you to enjoy this year’s holiday season safely.

We also hope you will support local businesses and entrepreneurs over the holidays, as their recovery from this past year and into next year requires your help. Our wish is to put 2020 behind us and get back on track in 2021. Ultimately, new opportunities emerge when navigating the greatest challenges in life.
