With COVID restrictions easing and events resuming last June, this column once again provided nonprofit event coverage. The stories sought to capture the spirit and content of each event in words and pics, but the focus, as always, was on the valuable work of our community’s nonprofits. There were also several in-depth feature stories on nonprofits providing critical assistance through the pandemic.
