This Spring Holiday Season will be especially hard not to celebrate with family and friends. It is imperative, for your protection, for your family’s protection, and for our community, please do not visit family that does not reside with you during these religious holidays or have any guests. No gatherings. No play dates. No deck parties. No backyard get togethers. Please continue to shelter in and practice all social distancing and prevention protocols. Please visit for more information.

The kindness and generosity in our community has been tremendous. We would like to thank all the organizations, groups, families, businesses, and volunteers for their continued donations and contributions of masks, supplies, and meals. We are eternally grateful for this incredible support. Pioneer pride and spirit at its very best! Thank you!

To help lift everyone’s spirits we would like to light up our nights in our community. If you would like to participate, please put lights in your windows or outdoors to show support and solidarity with our community, first responders, and our emergency management team, in the fight against COVID-19. Please join us!

Be well. Stay safe. Be smart. Stay strong and be positive. We will get through this together.

– Mayor Al Morgan
