As we continue to face growing uncertainties and are all looking for stability and a return to normalcy in our daily lives, it’s important to continue to follow the guidelines of the CDC and do what you can to keep healthy and safe.
We have all been impacted in some way and there will be moments still going forward that will challenge us all. I am confident that we will weather this storm because we are a community where folks care for each other and we are a Village that works together to be better together.
Although we had to cancel several of our spring and summer events that makes our community special, we are happy that we were able to provide a safe and socially distant fireworks show on Labor Day. This gave our residents an opportunity to enjoy a beautiful summer evening. For our seniors we had a socially distant outdoor afternoon with Polka. We really wanted to do something for the children of our town for Halloween, so we held a drive thru pumpkin and candy pick up and we are working on a similar idea for our children for the Christmas holiday so stay tuned for more information. I am hopeful that we can resume all our great community events in 2021 as health and safety guidelines permit.
As Veterans Day approaches, I would like to thank all our military men and women past and present for the sacrifices they have made and continue to make to keep our country free.
We will be honoring all our veterans with a socially distant ceremony on November 11, 2020 at 11:00 am at our Veteran’s memorial in the 3900 block of Ridgeland. We hope you can join us in thanking our veterans and their families.
I want to thank all our health care workers and all support staff in the medical field and our first responders who put their life at risk everyday to help others especially during this time.
Be Safe and Be Well. We are all in this together
Mayor Jeff Walik
