It is a time of ‘Renewal’ — and hope

We like the saying, “Hope is the air we breathe.”

Perhaps we need to add this: Hope is the vaccine we all get.

It has been a long, long year since COVID-19 came a knockin’.

Many of us now spend our days trying to breathe that hope.

At least, we should be.

We should be hopeful as a way to honor those whom we have lost … and we should pay homage to those who are fighting to get us out of the pandemic.

Your community newspaper, the Williamsport Sun-Gazette and its website at www.sungazette.com, are joining the many people, businesses and institutions fighting for “Renewal.”

You’ve read it … and you’ve seen the many advertisers we are featuring and who are investing in us to reach you.

We chose “Renewal” as our annual Progress theme this year because it is a time of renewal … and of hope.

Through March 31, you will continue to read about the people, businesses, places, institutions and organizations we rely on to keep our lives hopeful — and productive.

They help to create and sustain the opportunities and hope that we all crave and need.

And yes, what a better year it will be!

Please take time to read through the many pages of stories and photos we are bringing you with each edition through March 31.

You may learn about some new businesses, products or services you’ve been looking for, as well as appreciate existing businesses and organizations who’ve been here — working hard — all along.

And as always, we strongly encourage you to “Shop Local” and support the dedicated women and men who make our part of the world a special place.
