Dear ,

Fall is finally upon us, after what seemed like such a stretched out summer due to all the pandemic pandemonium. We welcome the season that showers us with beautiful, color-changing leaves. Fall in Northeast Ohio is one of the best times to be outside. Besides the beautiful scenery, the weather is also phenomenal. There's a perfect period of weeks where it's not beastly hot out or as cold as the arctic circle.

Whats The Word?
Cuyahoga Valley National Park
Fall is here and there is one place that is exceptionally beautiful, and that place is the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Although this national park is not too far from the urban settings of Cleveland and Akron, it seems worlds away. It is a refuge for native plants and wildlife, and twisted throughout are paths for visitors to discover. The Cuyahoga River that winds through gives way to rolling hills, deep forests and open farmland. Tucked away in this park is the beautiful Brandywine Falls. Standing sixty feet tall the falls are a mesmerizing sight, especially when you are able to combo the falls with the turning of the fall leaves in the surrounding area.

Cleveland Museum of Art
The Cleveland Museum of Art is one of America's most renowned museums. Drawing over 550,000 people per year, the CMA currently houses over 61,000 works of art, that span over 6,000 years! There are plenty of world renowned artists present in the museum including Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Salvador Dalí and Pablo Picasso. You might think that there would be a big price tag to see such an elegant collection of art, but you are wrong. The price of admission is free. The Cleveland Museum of Art has been highly ranked by tabloids such as Business Insider to USA Today. The toughest part about going to the CMA is how long you decide to stay there. You can easily spend your entire day there and still have rooms full of art that you will have to see the next time you go back.

Bay Corporation has yet to decide if we will participate virtually. Another popular trade show we go to Arab Health has been moved to June 21-24. We are still waiting to hear the decisions from other main trade shows

Covid-19 has now stretched into its seventh month and the novel coronavirus has become a household name. The virus is starting to be looked at as a societal norm, however, there are a couple of things that we have to remember. We can’t just go back to normal and each of us can still make a difference by following CDC guidelines. Testing is becoming more available to the public, with regular tests and rapid tests. A cure is in sight but many experts are saying that we won't have a cure readily available to the general consumer until the middle of 2021. Until then we will need to make sure we hold each other accountable to slow the spread of covid. 
This past summer, many of our employees took advantage of the summer weather by going outside and being active. One of the office's favorite outdoor pastimes has been golf. From the chatter around the office it does not look like they are going to slow down any time soon. Golf is a great way to get outside, exercise and relax all at the same time. The fall still offers plenty of chances to get outside and get active before the winter months stroll in and make it harder to get outside and get active.

Sustainability Tips
Here at Bay Corporation even though we are in the office and in the plant we know that there are still many people working from home. We have compiled our ten best tips for staying focused and motivated while working from home.
