CCRA This Week: June 3, 2021
News And Updates


And you may ask yourself: How do I work this?

Mask on here, mask off there?
Handshake? Hug? Air kiss?
Movie theater, concert, dining inside… Hey, are the comedy clubs open yet?

Have I really survived this?
And what’s really important to me now, anyway?

Currently we’re all Q’s and no A’s.

But oh, what a joy to be going out in search of all those A’s.
