A N  U NF A T H O M A B L E  P A ND E MI C  that damaged our biggest cities and killed over a half million people.

               Communities destroyed by business closures and forced government shutdowns. We’ve seen police brutality

               and  rioting on  the streets of  our inner cities. A MO V E M EN T  that in our lifetime hasn’t  been witnessed.

               We’ve  been  locked  down,  housebound,  watching  endless  shows  on  Netflix,  and  have  conducted  our  daily  lives

               from our home offices (normally, just a nice, quiet place for a bourbon and the Wall Street Journal). Our schools
               were  shuttered,  and  we  taught  our  kids  from  home.  We  adjusted  to T E C H N O LO G Y , participated on Zoom

                        T H I S Y E A R , W E H A V E E N D U R E D

               calls, and ordered our dinners to be picked up curbside. These all have made for some unnerving moments and

               anxiety ridden times. We pray for those families who lost their loved ones and for the people that have lost their

               homes and/or businesses. Through all this, we’ve found comfort in that we’ve all been relentless in our efforts

               to M O V E  F O R WA R D  in  our lives,  and that has made us a  stronger,  more impactful, and a more united

               C OM MUN I T Y .  We’ve found perspective and realized certain things that maybe we overlooked before or
               maybe took for granted. We found comfort in these moments and have adjusted our lives to embrace this new

               normal. These last few months, as we get back to some sense of normalcy, we will “tip toe” to a re-set of our daily

               lives. We will take advantage of this O P P O R T U NI T Y  and realize that people are still hurting, and that we

               must be sensitive to all that’s gone on around us. Mr. Sid has spent almost 54 years building our own community

               based  on  D IVE R S I T Y ,  I N C LU S I O N,   A C CE P T A N CE ,  and  F A M I LY .    We  believe  that  leading  by

               example, strengthening our relationships, and remaining steadfast in our values is the best way for us to respond
               to the current challenges. We have been faced with extraordinary circumstances and have had to strategize and

               pivot fast to ensure our existence. People weren’t going to work. They weren’t going out to eat, and most of all,

               weddings and special events were canceled. We did what we had to do but we survived this last year on the hard

               work of our D ED I C A T ED  S T A F F  and on the backbone of our F R IE N D S  and C LI E N TS  who supported

               us. We can’t thank you all enough and are humbled by the outreach and will never forget this. We are proud of

               the good we have done over the last 53 plus years, and we are  grateful for the many meaningful relationships
               we’ve made and intend to continue to deliver on our values and our reputation E V E R Y  SI N G L E  DA Y .
