December Publisher’s Letter: Happy holidays

  Season’s Greetings, What a year this has been! As we end 2020, my wish for you all is to focus on the things that we...

It’s Peter Gary, publisher of the Boca Voice. Welcome to the June edition of our monthly newsletter.

As our businesses, offices, and our famous Boca beaches, parks and restaurants reopen, I consider June 2020 a fresh start for all of us.

We shared a nearly three-month ordeal, staying home to help control the spread of a worldwide pandemic.

We all saw how our incredibly generous community came together to help all the people who were impacted.

Two new charities sprung up in Boca. Hospitality Helping Hands started by the Subculture Restaurant Group set up daily drive-through food distribution in front of Kapow Noodle Bar in Mizner Park. Boca Helps, an ad hoc mutual aid network of volunteers and community organizations, formed Boca Helps, organizing people who needed help and helpers. People as young as 5 years old came forward to make masks and other personal protective gear for our amazing medical and hospital staffs. Other frontline workers from law-enforcement to grocery clerks found a new level of respect they always deserved.

As we emerge, we have new safer conditions in place. Wearing masks and social distancing in public for everyone’s protection. Not everyone’s on board with these new sanctions, but we hope most of us will make their best effort.

Of course June 1 is the start of the 2020 hurricane season in South Florida. I didn’t forget. But the good news is that we’ve already stockpiled all the food and water we’re asked to do every year in advance.

We all know Covid-19 hasn’t been contained and we have to be watchful until medical research comes up with a vaccine to stop this horrendous virus.

So, as the police captain in the ‘80s TV series Hill Street Blues used to say before his crew went out on the streets every day: “Be careful out there.” And from me personally, always try to give it your best.

Peter Gary
