If you’ve been playing 2020 Apocalypse Bingo, chances are you’ve filled your card by now.

Yup, it’ been a year! Most people will be happy to see 2020 end. Some are asking to review the terms and conditions of 2021 before they ring in the New Year.

We’ve seen it all this year; an international pandemic, subsequent TP shortage, murder hornets, a national coin shortage, mystery seeds from China, threats of the Yellowstone Super Volcano erupting, nuclear fireworks, bears with nun chucks, super lice, square dancing hurricanes in the Gulf Coast, R.O.U.S (Rodents of Unusual Size) in a Texas Swamp, Sam Elliott shaving off his mustache… and we’re not even making these up! Well, we may have made up that one about Sam Elliott.

Here’s the craziest part… We’re still here. We made it through by leaning on each other… figuratively… from at least six feet apart… while wearing masks. Anyway, everyone here at JPI would like to thank you for sticking with us through it all this year. We especially want to thank everyone who supported our community initiatives. We’ve done our best to support small businesses and contribute positively to the community through it all and many of you were right there to help us do it.

It’s been a year for the books alright, but we hope you found a silver lining in the extra family time or maybe newfound faith in the way things have of working out.

We also hope that throughout the holiday season and long past, and after all the COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted, you’ll remember to Shop Local to support your friends and neighbors… The same people who support our community by doing things like sponsoring kids sports and donating to local nonprofits.

We send our very best wishes to all of you in the coming year, but would anybody mind if we jumped ahead to 2021 now?
