Dear Friends,

My daughter-in-law is a teacher, and her school's motto through this pandemic is to make sure that their students come through all of this Healthy, Happy and Whole. I love this as it truly represents for me, all that I hope for our all of you and for our community!

In an effort to bring some sense of normalcy back to our organization, we are thrilled to get back to providing you with our monthly newsletter!

On Tuesday, May 5 at 1:00 pm, we will be co-sponsoring an interactive webinar presented by the Washington-Ozaukee Health Department. I would encourage you to join us at this event. The Washington-Ozaukee Public Health Department (WOPHD) released the “Blueprint for Reopening Washington and Ozaukee Counties” on April 21st. The Blueprint provides broad guidance for reopening the economy safely and incrementally after Governor Evers’ Safer at Home order is lifted. This corresponding FAQ document provides industry-specific recommendations and check-lists for businesses and organizations to implement as appropriate for their individual needs. The Blueprint and FAQ are “living” documents that will continue to develop over time. The WOPHD is looking for feedback from the all of you for the purpose of further development of these guidelines.

Your Chamber staff really misses seeing all of you, and look forward to being able to all be together soon, Again, I know that we are all working towards a community that is Healthy, Happy and Whole!


Sincerely ,

Pam
Grafton Chamber Executive Director
