The Covid-19 disease pandemic has forced changes for all. We have cancelled face to face gatherings, including sporting events and our annual picnics for group home residents. Yet, our volunteers and Board continue to meet virtually on a regular basis, to keep our focus, plan ahead, and maintain contacts with those we serve. Engaging with new volunteers remains a high priority.
