BEST WISHES FOR THE NEW YEAR
The year 2020 brought us a health crisis of historic proportions. We lost loved ones and watched others escape the grips of death. It also showed us just how closely connected we all are, and how acts of kindness and care
helped neighbors through times of great struggle.
The new year offers us a chance to reflect what we have endured but also a chance to embrace hope for the year ahead. Remembering the lessons of 2020, we tread lightly with hope and caution as we take the last steps of this
It will take time to vaccinate everyone against COVID. In the meantime, we must continue adhering to protocols and guidelines set by the CDC. Don’t forget to continue maintaining social distancing, wearing face masks, practicing cautious hygiene, avoiding crowded indoor places and meeting people outside. These simple steps can keep us safe while we navigate
through the next few trying months.
The events of 2020 have provided not only telling lessons but also tales of courage for the history books. Reminders of this time will serve
as messages of hope, faith, and courage for generations to come. Reminders of a people who knew how to survive and thrive as neighbors and communities in times of need.
I wish you and your loved ones a Happy May you have a safe and healthy New Year. May you overcome all with a courageous smile, a faithful heart and ring in hope for a joyous and resilient future. Happy New Year. ❤
