The Calm After the Storm: 4 Key Sports Learnings from Hurricane Sally
The wee hours of the morning Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2020, were some of the scariest hours of my life.

As our president and CEO always says, every storm is different…take care of your family and home first. This storm indeed proved to be different, and I have never been more grateful to be part of a community that picks each other up and jumps into action without question. This type of reaction and sentiment in the wake of any type of crisis speaks volumes about a destination and contributes greatly to its rebound.
