What "normal" activity are you most looking forward to getting back to once COVID is behind us?

Around Town

Jordan Smail (with Zin)


I can't wait to pick up a bowling ball and go bowling again, and to resume my co-ed league play. I really miss spending time with my teammates and opponents.

James Howard


I can't wait to be able to take my 8-year-old grandson to children's movies again where I can spend time with him and be surrounded by tons of other kids. I miss all of the liveliness, commotion and noise that goes along with being around young children.

Nicole Moura

Program manager

I'm looking forward to being able to go to Trader Joe's without having to wear a mask, so that I can connect and engage with all of the employees, and try out every single sample.

Matt Dennis

Software testing

I'm eager to be able to attend heavily-populated festivals like our town's wine strolls and beer crawls. And of course that huge, annual, animal adoption event at the fairgrounds. Pretty much anything where people can engage with one another in three dimensions rather than just virtually/on-line.

Sergio Hernandez

Business systems analyst

I can't wait to get back to the office regularly, where I can collaborate in person with my colleagues. When we are able to get together like that I can learn more in 15 minutes than in several hours of Zoom meetings.
