For the May 7 episode, Morgan will be joined by town economic development manager Jill Bergman, and local restaurant owners from The Vine and Spirits, Pete's Brass Rail, Danville Harvest and The Peasant & The Pear.

"Our businesses are the heart and soul of our community," Morgan said in a statement. "Danville restaurants are truly unique as so many are independently owned. We are truly proud of how so many businesses shifted their models to compete during this challenging past year. Our goal has been and will continue to be focused on how we can support our businesses through the pandemic and beyond."

Specifically, conversations will focus on the challenges surrounding pandemic health orders, impacts to businesses during closures, local and federal support received, reopening plans and steps taken to adapt to the pandemic.

Interested viewers will be able to ask questions during the talk using Zoom's chat feature or can email questions ahead of time at [email protected]
