Dear Friends of EYA, 2021 turned out to be an incredible year. As it began, we were all concerned about what the future would bring. It seemed we had survived the worst of the pandemic, adapted to working remotely, and retooled much of our operations, especially sales, to a virtual world. We were optimistic about the future vaccines and the end of the pandemic. As 2021 progressed, the incredible development of the vaccines and the warm summer months brought a renewed sense of hope for a return to normal. In reality, it turned into a new normal. This new normal included variants that brought back Covid fears and renewed business uncertainty exacerbated by supply chain woes and challenged delivery schedules.
