The Community Development Foundation closed its year May 1, and it was my pleasure to have served as Chairman this past program year. It was year two of a global pandemic where we found ourselves dealing with isolation, separation, and COVID-19 surges. But I believe this year will be remembered most by how our community remained unified and stayed the course of community achievement and economic development despite the disruptions.
