For me, the Pandemic has shown the good and bad of the small town I live in. I want to thank those who have inspired me, like Tracey Peltier , Executive Director at Downtown Owosso Farmers Market . She started weekly live Facebook chats to keep the community updated and in the process let us into her home, her life and her amazing caring for all of us during this pivotal time. In addition, she galvanized viewers to provide feedback, support local businesses, and more! The market is now safely open, and while it was a team effort, watching Tracy learn to navigate the health and financial issues in a public way inspired me deeply .
