Councillor McCann Meeting Report (December 15, 2020)

Community Support Services - Adopt A Senior
I would like to take this opportunity to remind people of the area that there is still time to participate in the "Adopt A Senior" program through Parry Sound Area Community Support Services.  This is the ninth year for the campaign and is reinventing itself coping with the COVID-19 pandemic.  In fact the pandemic has created more isolation for many seniors and which compounds the loneliness some seniors already experience at this time of the year.  In addition to loneliness, many seniors are restricted due to lack of mobility and health.  Donations in the form of homemade crafts and knitting including hats, scarves, mitts, wraps, socks, quilted lap robes and other items are gratefully accepted and needed.  Financial donations and gift cards are also welcome.  CSS has been delivering "Personal Care and Activity Kits" to those registered with the annual "Adopt A Senior" program.  And you should know that CSS stays in touch by providing meals, rides, visits, supplies and equipment all year long.  For more information on CSS and/or to make a donation please call their office at (705) 746-5602.


Merry Christmas And Happy New Year
I would also like to take this time to wish one and all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  On behalf of my wife Josey, we wish you health and happiness throughout this season and in the new year.  Stay safe!  Season's Greetings!
