Beaverton, you’re awesome! It’s been a long road



We are starting to gather again as a community, and I could not be more excited! It’s been a long road together to get to this point. I’m grateful for each person who got vaccinated if they were able, wore a mask when necessary, and kept physical distance to increase safety for all. We are still wading into a new future together, and we have these tools at our disposal to use as needed.

I’m grateful for each healthcare worker, delivery driver, teacher, store clerk, food preparer, and EVERYONE who directly or indirectly helped keep people housed, fed, transported, and cared for. Basically, I’m thankful to every single person in Beaverton and beyond.

Thank you, Beaverton, for being awesome!
