The COVID-19 virus has had an impact worldwide. In Georgia, some people have been affected health wise, some business wise and some both. Georgia has gone from “what is this disease?” to “shelter-in-place” to partially opening up. Who knows what turns and bumps in the road will be over the next 6 months.

The Coffee County Living Magazine has always been about highlighting the many people that make Coffee County a great place to live. This COVI D-19 will provide us with new stories about heroes in our midst; about challenges that have been turned to amazing victories. Stories similar to that of JoAnne Lewis who tirelessly worked to find a solution to the closure of Pilgrim’s Pride a few years ago. Those types of triumphs big and small are out there. Be looking for them and call us or send us an email so that we can share them in your hometown magazine.

Because we publish in several areas, we are members of numerous chambers. Our Douglas Chamber has been doing one of the best support jobs we have seen! That includes most much larger chambers. A special “Thank You” goes to the Douglas Coffee County Chamber of Commerce. They have done a tremendous job on sending our resources and links to help businesses and the community.

Remember that God wants us to give Him the opportunity to turn what was intended for evil into good!!!
