As we enter into 2021, there are plenty of things to look forward to. In-person meetings, returning to work, our children back in school, family get-togethers, weddings, birthday parties, vacations, all the things we have put aside to be safe with slowly return.
It’s easy to think about enjoying something lost in recent months or what life would be like if the pandemic were over. Will we continue to work remotely, or will the virtual school be the new way of learning? What will the new normal look like?
Our goal is to serve charitable needs & enhance the people’s quality of life in our community.
The Cadillac Area Community Foundation will continue to reach out and be visible to our community’s needs. We will continue to work with our nonprofits to find relief efforts and grants to assist them. We are continually checking in with our food pantries and assisting our veterans with emergency requests. As we go into spring, we will be reaching out to our senior students about scholarships available.
According to Newsweek:
Vaccines become available to the general population; Dr. Fauci has said that most people will be able to “walk into a CVS or a Walgreens and get vaccinated” by April. Other experts say it may take until June.
I am looking forward to seeing family and friends more often, having my granddaughter spend the weekend, and visiting our two new babies in the family.
These are the simple things in life that make us happy. We need to get back to those times. The New Year cannot come soon enough for me.
Wishing all a Healthy & Happy New Year, Doreen Lanc
