So 2020 wasn't a complete dumpster fire after all...
Updated: Jul 29, 2022
2020 was a year we will never forget. Of course, it came with challenges and its fair share of twists and turns, but we are SO proud of how we showed up and what we were able to accomplish - not just for us as an organization, but for our community and everyone we work with.
We supported our clients through some trying times and became more connected as a team despite going through a full year without hugging one another (we miss hugs!!). We hit some lows, but also hit some of our highest highs, and can confidently say this was Marr Media Group’s biggest year yet.
But...most importantly, we came out of 2020 stronger, more resilient, and ready to tackle this new year with an open mind and heart.
Join us for a trip down memory lane...

We just wanted to say THANK YOU. Thank you to all of our Marr Media supporters: our clients, partners, friends, family, and our social media community. We could not do what we do without you.
As we close out the first month of the year, we are inspired, excited, invigorated, and so beyond ready to take the rest of 2021 by storm!
