I wanted to start this column by saying, “Welcome to the Hunger Games!” Sometimes I feel like we ARE in the Hunger Games, especially after reading about Murder Hornets. This morning I read about some schools already deciding to go entirely online in the fall, and stress starts to creep into my skin. What is this craziness we are living?
I think it is essential that we take the time to put things into perspective and focus on things we can control. If you are wondering what that is, here’s an answer. We can shop local, be local, live local. Our small businesses are desperately needing us right now. Please continue to order food and pick it up. Retail is open for business, or you can pick that up, too. All of our stores are finding ways to be available to you. It’s honestly so remarkable what our small county has been able to accomplish.
We don’t know what tomorrow looks like, so let’s enjoy today! Find some good and give it to others. I’m proud of you, Hopkins County.
During the year 2020, the Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce is highlighting a business each week.
Please join me in congratulating our Business of the Week for May 7, Broadway Veterinary Hospital.
