This year has been rough, to say the least. When 2020 began, little did we know that a virus was going to sweep the world and change almost everything. People panicked; people overbought toilet paper and canned goods; other people denied it was happening all together.
Growing up, I didn’t have a pet. I was desperate to have a golden retriever. I imagined myself playing with said golden retriever, telling him all of my secrets and curling up at night with him. I dreamed of the day I had my own place so I could have a golden retriever.
It’s finally March—the first exciting month of the year. Why is it exciting, you ask? Let me tell you. March signifies spring. The days get longer thanks to Daylight Saving Time, which starts March 8 this year. And just 11 days later, spring starts.
This time of year, it can be hard to know what to focus on. The holidays are over. The New Year’s resolutions are well underway—or already over. It’s too cold to do much outside for long periods of time. So we’re essentially stuck inside.
The holidays are here, and I bet you’re busy decking the halls and checking your lists. While it’s so easy to shop online and have presents delivered to your door, I challenge you to shop local and shop small this year.
As I write this letter, it’s Friday afternoon of Enshrinement Week. The office is pretty empty as many reporters and staff are covering various events happening. Tonight is the Gold Jacket Dinner, and Saturday kicks off with The Canton Repository Grand Parade followed by the enshrinement in the evening.
