Goodbye to some catch phrases forever hopefully, Happy New Year
As we approach the new year, we say goodbye. Goodbye to one of the crappiest years I can ever remember. Goodbye to staying locked inside and not visiting with friends and family. Goodbye to people hating, yes hating, other people because of their political beliefs. Goodbye (hopefully) to those annoying words new normal, super spreader, and my most favorite of all....unprecedented...yuk. I get it, the pandemic is not by any means over. And I am not saying it is, but the end is in sight. And the end of my short list hopefully is right behind. Someday we will look back and find something positive that came about from our quarantining all winter and summer and again the following winter, but for right now I can’t find a single positive. Very negative I know, I am sorry. Things can only get better - right?
But seriously - We wish you all the best this year. Please be safe on New Year’s Eve.
We will have some exciting changes here at the Press coming in the next few months so stay tuned.

Thanks so much to Craig Stockel and his many helpers that put on a wonderful Christmas community meal. The meal was cooked and prepared at First United Methodist Church in Lindstrom and residents were able to pick up their meals via a drive-thru set up. They handed out over 230 meals this year! 230 - wow, absolutely amazing. This is the 30th year of the meal which some doubted would even take place. Thank you all who helped make a whole lot of people’s Christmas wonderful this year.

The North Branch Area Chamber of Commerce has an opening for an exciting position. The Board of Directors is searching for an Executive Director who will have the opportunity to help define their own position. They are looking for someone who is a visionary, innovative, and a leader. As with all nonprofits, the Executive Director will have numerous “irons in the fire”, with COVID-19 happening as well as additional staff changes. You will get to help determine the shape of things to come.
Don’t have Executive Director or Chamber of Commerce experience? That’s ok.
If you’re looking for a flexible position that is community based, please email resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
