As we return to our “new” normal and celebrate Father’s Day this weekend, we’re reminded that our families are the most important of all during these uncertain times. Village is so proud of the dads who serve as essential grocery workers supporting our communities, and we’re providing a free donut this Saturday and Sunday to all our dads as a special treat. Additionally, all dads working on Sunday, 6/21 will receive a $10 gift card from the Sumas family as a show of thanks for taking the time to work on your special day!

We’ve asked you to submit photos for our video collage and you delivered in spades… Please take a moment to watch this message from Perry Blatt:

This weekend, we should think not only about our own families, but also of those in our towns and cities; the best way to show consideration is by practicing the safety guidelines recommended by the CDC when we’re out and about:

  • Wash your hands often
  • Maintain six feet of social distance whenever possible
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a face covering when around others
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces
  • Monitor yourself for symptoms and take action

As essential workers, you are all experts in your community about COVID safety and you should take it upon yourself to be diligent with these measures and teach others. You can find additional CDC recommendations here to learn about strategies for protecting yourself when you leave your house.

Thank you everyone, and enjoy a wonderful Father’s Day!
