We must do this thoughtfully and gradually so we don’t set off a rebound of COVID-19 cases. If we have done this well, we will be seeing broader business openings and a chance to get back closer to normal (probably without cruise ships). I can say with certainty how proud I am of our Bartlett employees, who have been exemplary in standing up to protect our community. I am also continually amazed by both CBJ and the members of our community, who have really stepped up their service and volunteering to help in this trying time. I also know that it is a very important time to take care of your well-being and to be kind to and appreciative of others. With this in mind, our Summer issue has plenty of information and inspiration. Thank you for caring! Chuck Bill, CEO WELL- BEING
