This pandemic has been a very trying time for all of us in one form or another. The Governor’s lockdown is set to expire on Fri., May 15 and based on what he has been saying the last few days there finally looks to be some light at the end of this long tunnel. Hopefully our region can begin to reopen, and we can start getting back to some normalcy. Until then, many are still in need of help and going forward will continue to need it until they can rebuild their lives. From what I’ve seen throughout the village, many of our great citizens have and continue to help those around us who are not as fortunate as others. I’m very proud of how Florida has been rising to the occasion and working together to help each other during this pandemic.
