THANK YOU to our wonderful local Continental Elementary School who put a big smile on all their student's faces today by driving through our neighborhoods to say hi to all kids at home because of COVID-19.

Thank you to our Superintendent, Principal, Administrators & all the Teachers who drove their cars in a caravan throughout our little town of Green Valley, Arizona.

Thank you for a brief and beautiful light in the darkness that you gave to all of us. We cannot thank you enough. I cannot thank you enough.

To All Our Followers, Families, & Friends:

During this extraordinary time in our country, state, and community, we must all resolve to work together to fight the COVID-19 virus that has so significantly impacted our daily lives.

As recommended by the CDC (Center for Disease Control), the best-known way to eliminate the spread of the virus is for people not to gather in groups—now called “social distancing.” If we, as a community, simultaneously help each other not to congregate, we will put a significant dent in the spread of this virus.

The main reason for social distancing is not only to slow the spread of the virus among our population but to help our hospital systems. By reducing the spread of the virus, we are essentially reducing the number of patients that would overwhelm our medical capabilities.

The ONLY way we are going to slow down and ultimately stop this virus is to work together as a nation. The sooner we take our medicine, and all stop congregating for this next month—and practice social distancing—the sooner we might be able to see each other face to face again.

During this time, we will be switching up our social media efforts to provide relevant information about the corona virus, offer up comfort and calm with inspirational messages, and ask for calls to action on how to fight this virus.

To all your families and friends—stay safe, healthy, and 6-feet apart.

Most Sincerely,
Carew Papritz
