Let's support local businesses

Restaurants, small businesses and retail stores are the heart of our community they create jobs, provide goods and services, and help fuel our economy. We need them and they need us! Please join in ordering takeout from local restaurants and “shopping in place” at local stores. Be sure to check their websites and social channels to see who's open and what creative options they're offering during this time! It will take all of us to help sustain our community's businesses.
