Dear Mark,

As the leaves fall and the chill in the air deepens, we find ourselves in the midst of a festive time of year. The seasonal transition from fall to winter brings a remarkable transformation in Northeast Ohio, turning the landscape into a true winter wonderland. Winter officially starts on December 21st, however it's feeling quite wintery here already! With snowflakes in the forecast and the aroma of hot cocoa in the air, we are excited to welcome the festive season with open arms. It’s a time of joy, togetherness, and celebration - a season where our hearts are warmed with the spirit of giving and sharing!

From all of us at Bay Corporation, we wish you a warm season filled with festive lights, peppermint mochas, and cherished memories with friends and family!
