July 2020
While this year started off like any other, it has turned out to be something quite unexpected and different from anything we all envisioned.

We hope you are all well. With COVID-19 restrictions being eased, it is still very important to continue to practice social distancing, by being 6 feet away from anyone, continue good hand washing hygiene, and wearing a mask in public indoor spaces.

Wishing you all a safe summer.
