Dear Town of Ekalaka & Residents of Carter County,
I was sitting here pondering what to say as we begin 2021. The first word that came to my mind about our community is resilient.
I have lived in Ekalaka for over 50 years, and it always touches me how this community cares for those who are hurting, alone and struggling.
I am so thankful that we have so many in this area who step up to do the hard things. Those at the hospital and nursing home have had to work tirelessly considering the pandemic. They have had to put their own needs and families aside to care for our loved ones.
