Update #7 – Year End Wrap Up & Looking Forward

As we approach the end of 2021, and the beginning of 2022, it is normal to both look back, and look forward. While 2021 brought many challenges to all of us, it also reminded me, in so many ways, why I love this City. All through the year, we saw residents pulling together to help each other […]

I received a […]
