This spring looks a little different for many of us. Yes, the grass is turning green, and the flowers are poking up. Some are in full bloom! These are usually the signs of renewal and hope and inspiration and they still are.

However, there are new signs popping up to encourage us and give us hope for the future. Messages of love, community and thanks that range from hand painted art to sidewalk chalk art and notes of appreciation for our front line workers. Our local restaurants and businesses continue to support the community, some with delivery services and free meals for staff and front line workers and others with on-line orders, curb-side pick or delivery. Many of the local community partners continue their good work with precautions in place. You can check their Facebook pages, their websites and we’ve included their contact info here. We are North End Strong and we will come out of this as a community that works together!
