Don't Let Your Guard Down

Vice President Chris Schoon, March 30

Many of us have our COVID 19 vaccines, but we still must keep our guard up. Not everyone has or wishes to get the vaccine. Precautions still should be taken especially with larger group settings. Mother Nature has teased us these mid- March days with sunshine and 60-70 degree days. More people are out shopping, exercising and congregating.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Vice President Chris Schoon, December 13

To say that 2020 has been a difficult year, would be a gross injustice. The challenges this year has placed on all our lives have been many and have turned our world upside down. So many losses in lives, lost loves, lost jobs and lost opportunities, but we have seen great acts of kindness and caring. That tells a story of humankind. Kindness to strangers, friends and family.
