As the virus cases continue to surge across the nation. I am guessing everyone is experiencing similar feelings about the pandemic. For me, the word that comes to mind is fatigue. I am tired of not being able to spend time with family and friends. I am tired of not being able to fully participate in most community events. I am tired and ready for life to get back to normal. However, when we are fatigued, this is precisely the time that we must redouble our efforts and get through this together. Let us continue to mask up, wash our hands, and practice social distancing. Remember, this not only protects us, but it protects our neighbors, family, and friends. I view it as my civic duty. Let us keep up the good fight and together we will truly get through this pandemic. Although our lobby remains closed to the public, Kankakee Valley REMC is here during these times to continue to provide exceptional and reliable electric service to you and your family. Be safe and be healthy.
