Happy Monday and I hope you have had a good July. We took a break from communicating for a couple of weeks but wanted to come to you today as there are some events and news that we want to make sure you are aware of.
I hope you have had a good July. I celebrated the 4th downtown with thousands of others at the fireworks celebration. After that, I took a vacation that I had been looking forward to for months to Provincetown, MA I along with hundreds of others, developed a “breakthrough case” of the Delta variant of COVID. I ended my quarantine today and am feeling much better after being pretty sick, they say that vaccinated people have a lesser case of it, and knowing that I would have hated to feel what full COVID symptoms felt like. I shared a post about it with further details that you can read here. I have been open and shared this to educate those that are vaccinated that they are not immune and still need to take precautions, and to plead with those that are still unvaccinated to get the shot as they are affecting others and that 95% of deaths are from unvaccinated people. We all need to get vaccinated and stop the spread of extremely contagious variants and continue to do our part in educating others on the need to get vaccinated. We have been and still are, all in this together.
Lauren is taking a much-deserved vacation this week and will be back in the office next week. I hope she has a COVID-free vacation and enjoys some time off. If you need anything regarding membership you can reach out to me this week.
We have a Brewing Up Business Thursday and a minority/diversity-owned business certification training tomorrow. See details below and I hope to see you Thursday for networking. Check below for details and much more information and news you should know about.
