More recently our club has begun to offer in person volunteer events, with all safety considerations in mind (small groups, masks, 6ft distance, outside). We have been able to host a cleanup of our 2 miles of the Lake Johnson greenway, meet up at Dorothea Dix Park to make 60 cards for seniors who may be lonely during the COVID-19 lockdown, and we are planning to have another outdoor picnic with donations made to Oak City
Cares, a local non-profit supporting individuals and families battling homelessness.
While COVID-19 has created difficulties for our club, we have not let it stop our mission to be a positive force in our community, and we are excited to keep up the good work!
