But, fear not! This is a time of coming together as a community. A time to support one another, hold fast to our values, strengthen our education, and cherish what makes Pella amazing! We look forward to expanding and developing our creativity to bring joyful and innovative events to Pella, as well as hosting the 2021 Thursdays in Pella bigger and better than ever!”
