I don't know how many times I heard that Covid would be over as soon as November 4th. I thought that was ridiculous from the first time I heard it. I still do. Guess what? November 4th was yesterday and as far as I can tell Covid is still a thing. Am I right?
So early on in 2020 things already hit Family Support Services hard. Their office in Downtown Amarillo had a fire. A lot of damages occurred. In fact their building was destroyed. So they already had to find a place to home them.
In a year that has had more downs than ups it is nice to have something that is able to happen. We have had many events have to cancel. We have had others that decided to postpone until a later date. Some events have been able to find a way to go on.
The summer of 2020 is coming to an end and with that one of our beloved summer activities also has to call it a season. The Amarillo Community Market has seen some challenges this year but it has survived and done great.
This was one of those stories I really hated to see. I hate seeing any business close down but this is one that I have gone to many of times. See it is in Downtown Amarillo and right by one of my workplaces. So this was a bummer to see over the weekend happen.
I can't say how long we have been waiting for this. I think the news broke sometime during last years Sod Poodles Season. You remember that team we have that got sidelined this year? Well just know we are finally getting a new place in Downtown Amarillo for tacos on Tuesday....or whenever.
We need to step up and help our favorite restaurants. We live in a place where regardless of Covid we need to support our local businesses. A lot were hit hard back in March and here we go again the restaurants are taking a hit. It is hard to stay afloat when you can't open up all the way.
The Potter County Courthouse has been the location for High Noon on the Square for years and years. In fact they celebrated their 25th year last summer. To say it has been a mainstay for many here in Amarillo would be an understatement.
