Update—The next update from the Governor will occur no later than Monday, May 18th. We will keep you all posted with any new information.

Finally, I want to share a great story (with permission) about turning lemons into lemonade. Michael Almquist and Katelyn Pope were married last week at Christ Lutheran (Broadway/Primrose) in Alamo Heights. Unfortunately, fewer than 10 people were allowed inside the Church. Unbeknownst to the couple, the Michael’s parents and the City arranged for family and friends to “social distance” outside the Church. Always going the extra mile, our Alamo Heights first responders helped in the celebration as well. Click the link and turn up the volume :

Thanks for SHOPPING LOCAL AND BUYING LOCAL, thus helping our businesses and restaurants survive.

Stay well.
