This is a message to our community. The people, the families, the individuals, the businesses and organizations, the soul of this special place we call home. We will overcome this. We know that people are scared, we are all scared. But we cannot let that fear overwhelm us. We cannot let that fear cause inaction. We cannot let that fear make us lose compassion and caring.

Together we have strength and together we have power. We cannot express enough how impressed we are with the work that has been done up to this point in addressing this crisis. How the community has come together to act, to make the hard decisions in understanding the severity of the situation. These actions make more of a difference than we think you know.
