a newsletter about current events & updates
Greetings!
School has "opened" and it's a very different world for many. Life has changed radically! Actually, much has changed radically in the last seven months. Seven months - can you believe that's how long we have been dealing with this pandemic. There doesn't seem to be an immediate end in sight - so all we can do is keep on keepin' on. And be kind to one another.

And in case you hadn't noticed - the November 3 election is around the corner. I hear that ballots will be in the mail soon - so vote early. I would also suggest using the ballot boxes located here and there throughout town.


Be well and safe!

If you want something added to this newsletter - please click here! The best thing to send me is a PDF or JPG of a poster describing your announcement. Do not send me press releases. They don't work well in this format and I don't have the time to reformat them. Thanks!

Our hearts go out to all who have suffered loss from the recent wildfires. I think we all know at least one person who has lost everything. There are lots of ways you can help. This is a recent poster I received which gives information about what is needed right now. We have an extremely generous community!

This short video made me smile all the way through.
And this one is just one in a very series of many. It's all about gardening and cooking and more.
It's truly fascinating - I'm hooked!
