Thrift Shop Plans to Reopen this Week: The Thrift Shop will remain closed through January, to minimize Covid exposure to the staff and volunteers there. The planned opening date will be Wednesday, February 2.
Stay Safe! Please stay masked whenever you are around people outside your household. Cloth masks are not very effective; at the minimum, use a surgical mask. KN95 and N95 masks are best! If you or household members develop cold-like symptoms (sore throat, runny nose, tiredness or loss of taste or smell), isolate and get tested. Avoid larger gatherings or eating situations with others. Getting vaccinated or boosted is a good defense against serious illness.
