Thankful, thankful, thankful

We all know this has been a challenging year. Still, we can’t help feeling thankful. Your airport has remained a prepared, dedicated partner in the community and in our industry, thanks in large part to you, our customers.

Whether or not you’ve been able to #FlyLocal these past months, your efforts at curbing the spread of the virus, supporting local businesses, and caring for one another have mattered a great deal. So, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

We also need to thank our #FlyLocal partners. They have been a true community resource at a time when our community needed them most. And we can’t thank them enough for that.

What we can do is give them a little space to share what they’re thankful for this year, too. It’s our way to ensure that a little bit more good gets put out into the world at a time when we could all use it.

Monaco Air is extremely grateful for our employee and customer loyalty, their good spirits, and the respect they show one another especially during these most challenging times.

Centricity Credit Union is thankful for the essential workers that have worked tirelessly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. They have put themselves on the frontline to make sure that other members of the community are taken care of. That’s truly the Credit Union Philosophy of “People helping people” and we could not be more proud of what our community has done to help each other out. We’re thankful for our own frontline staff who have gone above and beyond to help our members with all of their financial needs during this uncertain time. Thank you for a supportive 2020 and brighter days ahead

“2020 has been a tough year for all of us. We have seen challenges we could have never dreamed of before now, yet our staff came together and took each and every one of them on with grace. We are lucky to have a team of over 100 staff that continually look at ways to serve the community, and come to work with a smile every day.  We are excited to be a part of the community and look forward to getting through these challenging times together!”Duluth Area Family YMCA
