MAYOR MEED WARD’S TAKE:
Thanksgiving this year is going to look and feel a lot differently, particularly with the Province recently announcing going back to a gathering limit of 10 individuals total indoors and encouraging families to only get together with those in their household (individuals living on their own can join a single household). However, I know our residents are resilient and will find creative ways to gather with their families this year (be it virtually or by other means) and give thanks for the positive things what we still have, during this difficult year. I wish you all the best during the Thanksgiving holiday.
