COVID -19 Special Announcement
Special Announcement from the Plymouth Community Centre & Recreation
Greetings from Plymouth Community Centre...
I must convey a warm hello and 'we're thinking of you' to everyone in the East River Valley area on behalf of the Plymouth Community Centre board and volunteers! At this unprecedented time in history and in the midst of great sadness and stress, Nova Scotians continually show their strength, ingenuity and generosity!
As we look towards the coming summer months, my thoughts are of the children...children whose lives have been altered in a way no one could imagine! We are monitoring the Public Health guidelines and are in communication with Pictou County Recreation and other organizations.
There is nothing we would like more than to be planning our regular Summer Rec program but, at this stage, it is evident that will not be possible. Should an alternative plan be viable and safe, we will be open to exploring ideas. I hope that all of our 'Rec kids' are well and finding fun and creative ways to fill their days. We have spent a lot of time together over the past years with our wonderful volunteers and leaders and it is hard to imagine a summer without them! Peace and quiet can be over-rated!
Take care, everyone! Janet MacDonald

History of the East River Valley of Pictou County
