Dear GRM Networks Customer,

Traditionally, the month of August brings the bright lights of state fairs, the culmination of summer family vacations and back to school preparations. While the pandemic changed summer’s landscape, a few unexpected positives emerged.

As I reflect on the summer of 2020, I recall amending summer plans to observe recommended health guidelines, but I am also reminded of the quality time spent with my grandchildren and their parents. For many of us, time spent with family members allowed for stronger family bonds and heartfelt joy that money cannot buy. These are memories that will forever be cherished.

For many of you, the focus now shifts to school and the return of in-person learning. As schools navigate the uncertain path to reopening, I urge everyone to be patient. This too shall pass.

GRM Networks, SCC Networks and LTC Networks will continue their efforts to support local learning by providing free public Wi-Fi throughout our coverage area. The free Wi-Fi has been available through our business offices, and the 48 central office buildings found throughout our territory, since the shutdown began in March. If you do not have access to the Internet, please use these sites as a resource. A complete listing of these locations may be found following this letter.

While we all try to squeeze in those last days of summer fun spent with family prior to the start of school, let us all continue to do our part and work together to contain the spread of this virus. Whatever our role, we all want our youth to return to school healthy and able to focus on learning. On behalf of all of us at GRM Networks, I wish all the area faculty, staff and administrators a safe and blessed 2020-2021 school year. We appreciate all you do for our future leaders. GRM Networks remains committed to providing solutions for all your communication needs.

Sincerely,
Ron Hinds
CEO
