Local Businesses Need Your Business

This quarantine is temporary. When we make it through we will want our community to bounce back with strength and vigor. Local businesses are honoring safety protocols and making it possible for you to continue to shop while maintaining social distancing. Please shop local.  It’s never been more important to buy a gift certificate from a local retailer or service establishment, order online and pick up some supper from one of our local restaurants, or purchase some of the things you need to work on those spring projects while you are home.
