Sept. 10: Remembering Sept. 11

Good afternoon,

Tomorrow marks the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks on our country. 20 years ago, 2,977 people were going about their normal days when tragedy struck and they never made it home. Those people were mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, daughters and sons. They had people who loved them and now miss them. It may be 20 years later, but our country and each of us have forever been changed by the events of September 11, 2001.

This weekend promises to be warm and sunny. Whether your plans include apple orchards, football games or just spending time with friends and family, I hope we all take a few moments this weekend to remember the September 11 attacks and honor those who were killed and how that day changed all of our lives.

On a different note, last night, President Biden announced new vaccination/testing requirements for all employers who employ more than 100 employees. He also issued an executive order regarding vaccine requirements for federal contractors. We do not have any details yet, but I expect these requirements may apply to our organization once the rules are finalized. I know this will spark a lot of questions. I promise to provide as much information as I can, as quickly as I can, once it becomes available.

Again, it looks like we have a nice weekend ahead. Please take time to relax and enjoy it.

Take care and stay safe,
