Dear Residents of Mission:
The Province has extended the provincial state of emergency. This means that the measures we are abiding by now will continue.
At this time, I’m often asked by residents, how can I support local Mission businesses? How can I help?
It’s wonderful that as a community we are thinking about each other and looking toward the long-term, to when we can get back to normal.
As you know, many of our local businesses have had to close their doors to customers due to COVID-19.
But you can still support local businesses here in Mission.
Many of our restaurants and coffee shops are still open for take-out. Put an order in.
You could also buy a gift card for a service you’ll use once COVID-19 is over. Your investment will make a difference.
Online shopping is very popular and convenient. Take a stand and support local online shops.
We’re in this together, so if you have a favourite business, get in touch with them and ask how you can help. Your action will go a long way. It’s how we do things in Mission.
The current COVID-19 situation is not easy, but it won’t last forever.
Thank you for your hard work. Stay calm; stay strong.
Until next time.
Mayor Pam Alexis and Council
