Finger Lakes in Business

Illustration by Darryl Abraham

Many advertisers and business partners of Life in the Finger Lakes magazine continue to offer their products and services while following safety protocols set forth by New York State. Others are doing what they can to conduct business using online and digital communication. While some events in the immediate future have been cancelled, others have been postponed to a later date, when we can all get out once again and enjoy life in this region. Let’s stay persistent in our safety measures, while also staying optimistic about the future!
