• Sisters School District sent out a thank you out to Ray’s Food Place for donating grocery bags for material pickups for all three schools last week. Gary Thorson of SSD said, “They were a huge help this past week.”

• The community of Sisters owes a tip of the hat to all the workers in the grocery and sundries marketplace, the pharmacists, the people pumping gas — all those who have worked so hard over the past several weeks to keep shelves stocked and essential services and goods coming to the folks who live here. They have more exposure than most of the rest of us, and they keep showing up — and keep everyone’s spirits up, too.
