While a lot of businesses in the region were shut down due to COVID-19, their greatness never left.

Businesses stepped up. Even when their doors were closed, they stepped out into their communities to ask how they could help others.

Entrepreneurs have fought harder than ever to turn business around, plan, adapt and grow. The resilience they’ve shown is just part of what makes them great.

Add a devastating flood to the mix, and still the region’s strength shined through.

And now, add the pain our black community is feeling. There is just so much struggle, so much turmoil in the world today.

It’s time to listen.

It’s time to learn.

It’s time to enact change and take that next step of advancement in the name of humanity and kindness. Justice, fairness and decency should never be considered entitlements reserved for the few.

Moving forward, we could all use some positivity. Not to take our focus away from current events, but because we also need to find some good. And there is a whole lot of good in the Great Lakes Bay Region.

We opened up voting for the Greatest of the Great Lakes Bay before the COVID-19 pandemic began, and we bring you this issue we because felt it was important to honor these businesses now more than ever.
