Aurora OH Strong!!

It's happening! Retail, salons, restaurants...Aurora is opening! Please be patient with all of the owners and employees of all of these businesses. It's like they are starting a new business! Things will be different for quite awhile and we need to get used to it. And please pay attention and respect the guidelines that they are implementing!

The 2020 Community Guides have arrived! If you didn't get one in your Aurora Advocate, please let me know and I will get one to you. Want to display at your place of business? Let me know! I will deliver them! At a safe distance of course!!

We had our first Virtual Luncheon today! Went off without a hitch! We will be trying to plan at least bi-weekly events to keep everyone connected.

We all need to continue our physical distancing and if you are able, wear a mask. I will wear one any time I am out in public places. Please respect those that have chosen to wear a mask and continue to be vigilant to flatten the curve! Don't let your guard down now! We have come too far!

I am still working remotely but coming to the office a few days a week. I am replying to emails and phone messages as they come in. Please visit our website, for up to date information,call me at 330-235-2780 or email Lastly, a reminder that there are two Facebook pages that are also informative and being updated regularly:
