The snow is finally flying, business is booming in the last-minute Christmas rush, and our community is filled to the brim with holiday spirit!
As we lock the door and turn off the lights on another year, we all come out of it different people than we were just 12 short months ago. We've endured hardship, uncertainty, loss, and trepidation. However, these struggles also helped us experience more thankfulness, generosity, kindness, love, and camaraderie.
I have always looked at challenges in life as opportunities to make something new of myself and test my own strength - I hope that is exactly what each of us come out of 2020 with. New ideas, new resolve, thicker skin, and renewed kindness and understanding. This year - as difficult as it has been for many - reminds us that we can always improve and better ourselves and our businesses. We can always find new ways to reach our goals and be flexible where we used to not bend.
Please enjoy your Christmas and use it as a time to make new plans and reach for the stars in 2021! We will stand beside you every step of the way as your Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau.
Merry Christmas from myself, my staff, and my Board of Directors.
