When I moved back to my hometown and opened this restaurant, I thought I had moved back to a small town and community that helped and cared for each other. Now I see so many voices tearing that apart. Why?
Our business remains closed because of restrictions limiting our capacity, as do many other wonderful businesses, likely owned and run by some of your friends. Many cannot reopen until Phase 4, some unfortunately will run out of money and not make it that long.
So I'm asking for your help to solve that. No money, just common sense and one small inconvenience in fashion.
*1. Please wear a mask when out in public.
At the grocery store, at Home Depot, to get coffee, while working at your business with lots of other people. Wherever else! Just do it.
I realize you think you don't look tough or pretty or cool. But you do to us. It shows you're smart, caring and compassionate to your friends, neighbors, that grocery store clerk, and businesses like ours. You're not a sheep, you're simply going about your business in public and not being a complete ignorant jerk.
*2. Still practice social distancing, and most of all support each other.
I understand these are frustrating times, and I know you're tired of your kids. We all wan't to go back to living normal lives. Do yourself a favor and just get over that notion for awhile. Instead, look for the reasons to care, and not buy into all the political rhetoric. Grays Harbor IS a great place. Let's all try to be part of a community that cares about each other, and helps....not be a person who wants to act selfishly to spread hate, fake news, and viruses. Whether you agree with it or not! Just don't.
The numbers of businesses that will close because of this will be staggering. I hope our community can rally and be different, so all of our local businesses can come back, including ours. We miss you, and want to come back better than ever, we just need our community to help. ❤️
Be well, my friends-Andy
