It’s May and spring has finally sprung? Although it feels at times that the cold weather doesn’t want to let go, there are signs of change. In the current environment of stay at home orders, social distancing and the use of face masks there is still work to be done, while observing the proper safety measures. Thank you to all you do and please stay safe.
