What’s Special about Normal Services

For example:

  • Welcoming staff: sets the tone for what is civil in uncivil times. Provides some solace for those whose homes were damaged.
  • Family programs: helps children cope and gives parents relief. How about a Fun Day on the lawn?
  • Electricity: means a place to charge cell phones, laptops, wheelchairs;
  • Library materials: provide recreation and distraction in a stressful period; and
  • Internet: provides contact lifeline to family and friends, complete forms, and a source of information.
