Happy New Year! I hope the holiday season was enjoyable for all and although some plans may have changed this year, my wish for you is one of hope and prosperity in 2021.
My message the past few months has been the importance of forward motion. Let’s keep moving day by day in bettering ourselves, our professions, and our work/home life balance as we navigate through uncertain times.
I applaud our community for continuing to come together to support local. Congratulations to the new businesses that have opened this past month. We wish you much success.
