President's Message

We are gearing up to help the public familiarize themselves with the vaccination process so they too can get the COVID-19 Vaccination when it becomes available to community members. Please join with us and take a picture of yourself with your card getting your vaccine and send it to carrie@upstream.org These pictures will be posted on our Social Media platforms as a way to encourage others to get vaccinated themselves starting in the spring.
