Reuniting Our Community Over Tech, Talk, & Tacos
 
As March nears its end, residents of Bay and surrounding counties are still coping with the massive destruction Hurricane Michael wrought more than five months ago. In just four hours, the storm changed many people’s lives forever. Many of our friends and family members are still displaced; places that held significant memories of our pasts are gone; and the home repairs, debris hauling, and construction continue with no end in sight. It’s no wonder that many are searching for ways to put their lives back together and get back to normal.

With this in mind, the staff of TechFarms and Grand Lagoon Life magazine teamed up to bring a little normalcy back to Bay County — with the help of tacos.
