Hello from the desk of the Alliance. I usually start off sharing how busy we have been and yes we have had a busy week. We celebrated another business opening in our downtown. Welcome Merle Norman! Their new space (346 15th street) is fantastic. If you missed their ribbon cutting, you can view it on our Facebook page.

We had a Full Board Meeting and shared what we have learned over COVID-19 and how to apply our lessons to be better for you as our members. We also had the chance to pitch to the world how we could/would be a great place for a project. All and all a very good week.

We are moving back to in person meetings. We will be safe, responsible, and offer a virtual option since we understand everyone is connected online. But it is time and you deserve it. The sun is shining and the days are getting longer. Spring has sprung and we are moving ahead for you. This has been a very good week. Thank you all for what you do. Thank you to those I called upon to help show the world what we have to offer. We will help rebuild this region and the hope it deserves.
