CROSSING PATHS
Words of (not quite) Wisdom
from the Executive Director


Hello Cross Plains!

Every week there is something new to share to our Cross Plains Community and this week does not disappoint. From the graduating seniors of MCPASD to new COVID-19 updates we have lots of new information to share. But in this Monday's newsletter you'll also see some "old" news, things I've shared in the past. I'm still sharing because I'm still in need of feedback or they still have value to our businesses and community. Please don't overlook them.

Take just a few minutes to read the newsletter in its entirety; click on the links, check out the social media platforms, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page. When you've done that, let me know what you think. What did you like? What did you find helpful? What was missing? Your voice is important to me; send me an email .

Before I wrap this up, I would also like to give a shout out to Reeson Chiropractic on their 15th Anniversary in Cross Plains today! I encourage you to send your "Congratulations to them here !

Be Safe & Healthy!

Kind Regards,

Terra Morris
Executive Director
