In the past year, we have been living in extremely difficult times that stressed our community and we had struggles. However, from these difficulties, our resolve has strengthened with a solid response to the pandemic. We are saddened for those in the community that have passed away from the virus. Our prayers are with their loved ones and for their recovery. We are extremely grateful to our health care workers, Calais Regional Hospital and all first responders who are keeping us safe and healthy.
