Hello Friends! We continue to pride ourselves on offering a space where members feel welcome and comfortable and we don't want that to change, but we also know we're still not out of the woods yet either. So while we continue to stay vigilant and put the health and well-being of our team, members and community ahead of all other interests, you'll notice some changes when you come to visit, but just know it won't be forever.
We would like to take this opportunity to send you all virtual hugs and thank you for your support of UFirst and our team. We know that our limited hours, branch closures and contacting us via phone has been difficult. It has not been any easy transition for anyone especially our team who have had to work from home with young ones or work in spaces that are not their normal, but we've made it through together and we are so grateful for your patience and unwavering support. Thank you!
