A Message about COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic requires all of us to take unusual precautions. This is particularly true for our vulnerable older citizens, but all citizens need to adapt to new social arrangements, specifically, social isolation. This will be an extremely difficult time and for those who don’t understand, like our smaller children and grandchildren. This is an incredibly challenging period in their lives. We feel for our small children who would normally thrive on social contact but who now restricted in their movements and interactions. We feel for their parents who will struggle over the coming months. We feel for those who are alone and anxious throughout the country. We at “Team ACRO” will reach out to add support and a helping hand to try and reduce the stress that we all share at the moment. There is indeed a “yellow brick road” that we all must follow. The “wizard” that we all hope will be at the end is vaccination and a new beginning for us all. Along this road we will have many adventures and need to maintain a positive attitude. Team ACRO is still operating and will continue to do so – in whatever form, undertaking whatever tasks are required of us. We have a history of resilience that we intend to share with our diverse constituency. Good luck and be safe!
