Like most of us, I am grateful to our first responders, health care workers, delivery people, and essential service workers who are, at great risk, keeping us going during the pandemic. However, I am most grateful for the small businesses in the Tri-Town who have quickly stepped up to provide essential services locally and safely.
Like many seniors and people with underlying health conditions, the thought of going into big box stores is simply terrifying. So I would like to give special thanks to those local businesses that have quickly and quietly done a fabulous job of keeping us safe and providing us with essentials and some extras.
I think we are very fortunate to live in a community with such kind and generous small businesses. So please join me and thank those small businesses that have responded so well to help us during this tough time.
Patricia Donoghue, Mattapoisett
