City Council Meeting

June 16, 2020


Mayor's Message:

         The beautiful days of summer are finally here. While it is disappointing the impact that COVID19 continues to have on our community with the ongoing loss of jobs, instability regarding schools reopening at the end of Summer, and cancellation of some of our most treasured events such as Hodaka Days, Caledonian, Summer Library events, and the Pendleton Roundup, now more than ever it is important to reach out and make effort to stay connected to family and friends. More and more is beginning to come out about the negative effects of prolonged isolation – humans were just not created for that. While we may not attend a 4th of July parade, we can certainly gather with those we love and celebrate this country we are blessed to live in. Family picnics can go a long way to restoring the joys that have been lost. I recently heard a wise person say, “You tend to see what you are looking for.” So – make sure you are looking for what is good – and if you don’t see any good – ask what you can do to help create it.

Mayor Becky Schroeder
