BLOG -- Second half of season - Aug. 1, 2020
Our season is now half over & it has been a challenge for Papa Robbs as it has for businesses , especially small locally owned businesses, across the country. Many will not survive, but are determined & we are very fortunate. We have a good product, good corporate partners/suppliers, a super staff & we have you - our friends & customers.
Since some of this blog will not be what you want to hear let us begin by saying how much we appreciate your support & loyalty. Change & adjustment is never easy & we have all had to live with change this year. But if we stay the course, do the right thing & support each other then this too will pass. It will not be as soon as we would like & to be honest, things will never be quite like they were before. With that in mind let's get to the latest news, updates & plans.
No matter what you hear otherwise, the Covid-19 virus is real, dangerous & will be with us for a while longer. We hope & pray for better days, smarter treatments & a vaccine that works. Until then we must make smart decisions & truly believe that we are all in this together. Your continued understanding, patience & support are needed now more than ever.. Please note the following:
SAFETY -- Paramount; most important; basis for every decision we make. The safety of you, your family & for our staff. We also happen to believe in facts, numbers, statistics & science. We heed the advice of our doctors, the CDC & our local health alliance.
PLAYGROUND -- Our playground is closed & will remain closed for the rest of this year. Public playgrounds are closed & we are considered public. It is the law & it is smart policy. Before it does re open there are repairs that need to be made & it will be clean & professionally disinfected.
SEATING & RESTROOMS -- Also closed for the foreseeable future. Simply too dangerous & very hard to control. We do not have the staff size. Plus the kids will not understand why they can not play on the playground, etc. Not fair is it? We do allow tailgating with your family & we appreciate your help with keeping our property neat & clean.
That's it. We know it not the most pleasant of news but it is the facts. We want things different too, but we want everyone safe - SAFE SAFE SAFE. So be patient & remember that we need, welcome & appreciate your support.
Thank You, Papa Robb
