From ‘225’: A look back at the year that was

But that’s not to say that the year was completely bereft of benefits! Despite our downfalls, we have seen the Baton Rouge community come together like never before. So while we’re ready to leave 2020 in the past, maybe a quick reflection is what we need to move on into 2021.
