Best Week Ever
This week anyone who was able to celebrate Thanksgiving again is having the Best Week Ever!

For many families this was the first time since the pandemic began that they felt comfortable getting together and could do so safely with children now eligible for vaccines, too.

Don't forget that there's testing at ES Hospital Mon-Fri from 8am-5pm. No appointment necessary. Drive thru testing. Results within hours.
Coming Soon
Earlier this week it was announced that the Inside Out Escape Entertainment would be doing construction in their new space for escape rooms which will be located in Crown Hill Plaza Shopping Center!

Je-anne and Tim Ruekert have been searching for a commercial space for some time and in the meantime have had their escape room at various festivals and events as a mobile unit! It's great to see them find a space locally! Anticipated open date would be around the first of the year!
Word on the Street
The Cancerkickers annually have a Breakfast with Santa at St. Ann's church as their fundraiser. This local group helps women suffering from breast cancer. Due to covid and measures beyond their control, they will be unable to host it this year. If you're able, please consider sending them a donation at
