Each day, all around us, thousands work in ways that sustain or advance this community. Some efforts are small, some large, yet each and all are useful to this city.

Embedded above are photos from the Wednesday, 11.8.23 ribbon-cutting ceremony.  

Welcome to Whitewater, and best wishes for a thriving practice.
