Message from the Mayor

Message from Mayor Missey Moorman Schumacher - August 2020

As we approach the end of summer, we continue to find ourselves in uncharted territory. Organizations, administrations, communities, and families find themselves faced with unprecedented challenges, making tough decisions in an ever changing landscape. The important thing to remember is that everyone is doing the best they can with the information and resources available. The best that we can all do as residents is to continue to support one another and our community.

Our local businesses still need our support. “Buy Local” takes on renewed importance. Our neighbors need our support, whether that be delivering supplies or a cheerful wave. Local charities are still working to support those in need. Our young residents need additional support as they enter a school year that looks far different than any previous year. Our schools and educators need our support as they work to bring education a to our young people while protecting their safety.

It sounds cliche to say we’re all in this together, but it’s true. Each and every person, organization, business, administration, and group continues to be affected in any number of ways by the current pandemic. The answers are unclear at this time, and how the near future shapes up seems uncertain and changing sometimes daily. 

Please remember that through all of this, our community remains strong. We are fortunate to have each other and a community that pulls together in times of strife and need. Look out for each other and do what you can to help others. We’re all dealing with the current circumstances as they continue to present themselves. Most of all, remember to simply be kind.

Have a great August. Enjoy the rest of the beautiful summer weather. Stay safe and take care of yourself and each other.
