Surviving the COVID-19 reality has been challenging for us all.  Transitioning back to a new type of normal will potentially be even more challenging.

We have seen the devastating impact of the pandemic on families, businesses and the most vulnerable in our community.

People have been scarred.  Businesses crushed.  Jobs lost.  Lives irreversibly changed.

Yet, as painful as that experience has been for us individually and as a regional community, there are positives to build upon.
