A Great Time to Get Outside
Spring break and beautiful weather is a great combination! Bella has a fun idea that takes chalk, some creativity and your best dance moves!

Keep in mind, even though the weather is nice and more people will be spending more time outside, stay the course and keep your 6 feet distancing so we can all get back to time with family and friends!

“Thank you to the kind person in the City of Spokane’s utilities department. She called me on Friday and informed me that I had written my check for the wrong amount. I put $1,000 instead of $100. Things are crazy and my brain was little fried. She was so nice and resent the bill and returned my check. I appreciated so much the grace she showed me. It might seem like a little thing, but my job is really stressful right now and this was one last thing I had to worry about.”
