WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
We've found comfort in these words shared from our friends at The Morning Brew:
"Every hand that we don't shake must become a phone call that we place."
"Every embrace that we avoid must become a verbal expression of warmth and concern."
"Every inch and every foot that we physically place between ourselves and another must become a thought as to how we might be of help to that other person, should the need arise."
Our members matter, and we encourage the entire community to support each other and buy local, support local businesses and find ways to keep every business moving forward.
