With the weekend here we would like to remind everyone to respect social distancing at our beaches and parks. Outdoor exercise is permitted but social gatherings are not allowed. Let's all do our part to keep beaches and parks open by respecting the shelter in place order.
THANK YOU! We are making a difference
and flattening the curve. Let's keep it up!
