RETURN TO BUSINESS: Groves celebrates Bella Ink Studios, 1st ribbon cutting since pandemic began – Port Arthur News
GROVES — The city of Groves celebrated its first ribbon cutting this week for a new business since the beginning of the pandemic.
On a sunny day Wednesday morning, Rashauna Gay cut the ribbon in front of her business, Bella Ink Studios.
“It felt really good,” Gay said. “I am really proud of myself. I’ve been doing photography for 12 years, but the permanent makeup, I have offered since December.”
For some at the event, the ribbon cutting matched the symbolism for Texas governor Gregg Abbott’s declaration earlier this week to open the state during the coronavirus pandemic.
