Greetings from Hickory Corner.
Reminder to wear your mask when you are out and about and can not practice social distance. It really is not that much of an inconvenience. It helps prevent the spread of the virus and protects ourselves and our loved ones. I wish everyone would wear a mask. “It’s when you act selflessly that you are at your bravest.” – Veronica Roth
