President’s Update – July 22nd, 2020
No one could have anticipated what this year was about to bring. Only three months in and 2020 suddenly became all about canceling trips and events and social distancing.
We had to quickly learn to navigate simple things like working from home, protecting loved ones, getting supplies and staying connected to friends in a very different way than we are used to.
Everyday all we hear is cases and numbers rising so, it is also more important than ever to find moments of joy just as it is to wash and sanitize our hands, practice social distancing, or check in on your loved ones.
So, with all that in mind, the committee has come up with a number of exciting ideas we like to undertake over the next few months, (restrictions pending of course) to keep us connected, fit, happy and healthy and remind us what a great inclusive club we are!
We would like to trail a virtual Little Aths for those that would like to participate over the month of August. Details and how exactly we would run this, including how to join will be posted in the next week or so.
We would also like to do have a kid’s day at Sk8 house in Carrum Downs, where they can enjoy time with all their friends and simply have fun. Naturally, this depends on restrictions easing, but it’s a great way to say connected before the season commences.
The kids aren’t the only ones who will have all the fun. Plans are being discussed about a Golf Day and a Shopping Tour for those that are interested.
Dates and costs for all these will all be posted as details emerge.
COVID isn’t the be and end-all, and whilst we are limited in physically spending time with friends and family, spare a thought for Wally because suddenly he’s not that hard to find!
Take care and stay safe
