I think we can all agree that 2020 brought its share of challenges. As we look back over the past nine months and summer is a distant memory, there were moments that became extremely special in contrast to our daily experience. All of us at Shields, like so many others, have been working remotely, seeing each other only on Zoom calls. During one of our staff meetings, we decided that some team bonding was just what was needed. Ali lives in Humarock, steps from the beach and she, and her pup Leleu, graciously offered to host a socially distanced beach party. Steve and Nicole also joined in on the fun! It was one of the first times things started to feel a bit more normal and seeing each other boosted our morale for days to come. The sangria helped too!
