Our community has been rocked by the shootings that took place on June 7th that claimed 6 lives. Two unrelated shootings have occurred since that time, leaving 1 dead. These events can have a tremendous emotional toll on us all. A temporary Community Connections & Support Center has been set up for anyone finding it difficult to cope with the shootings. Services are free, open to anyone, and offered in English and Spanish. Drop by for coffee and a chat, a brief counseling session, or referral to longer-term help.
