Hello everyone. I hope this finds you well and keeping busy during the temporary closure of the Club.
I’ve tried to occupy my time by doing chores, gardening, watering and hopefully soon, starting to pick my raspberries. We have already harvested our rhubarb and the scapes on our garlic plants, which we have experimented using in recipes to great success. I have completed some projects around the house that I have postponed for years – no longer any excuse that I don’t have the time! I am continuing to play online games such as Scrabble Go and Lexulous (available on Facebook) with people from around the world. I have many books on my Kobo reader to get through as well.
We have been receiving questions regarding the Club’s reopening. Unfortunately we cannot do anything until the Province and the City of Markham gives us the okay. We must be very cautious in doing so, particularly as we are Seniors. As soon as we learn of any reopening details we will post them here. When that time comes, please share the information with Members who do not have access to the internet.
Through our phone outreach and emails we receive, I am very happy to report that we have not heard of any Members contracting COVID-19. For now, wearing masks (if possible) and physical distancing remain key to protecting ourselves and others from the spread of the virus.
We hope you are continuing to reach out to your fellow Club Members by making a few calls each day. It’s important we all stay in touch. If you have a question, concern or other, please email Cindy at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will try her best to assist you or direct you to someone who can.
We will get through this together.
Take care and we hope to see you back at TSC soon.
Norm Goldstein – President of TSC
