From Alma Durkin
I am writing this in the middle of the Corona virus pandemic and hoping it will soon be over. Eight weeks confined to the house and still counting but, In the meantime, we must amuse ourselves and keep busy to keep sane.
My brain seems to be at its best when I wake up about 2 am. That’s when I decided to copy the Uxbridge community idea where my daughter lives and organize a food drive for our Crescent.
My neighbours rallied round and were able to get a van packed with supplies. The young people did all the work and I received all the accolades.
Just think, if every Aurora street did this, the food bank would be overwhelmed. We may be old but we can still make suggestions and benefit our less fortunate neighbours.
Are Joe and I the oldest members of the Aurora Senior Centre? We must be pretty close since we were in our sixties when we joined and are in our mid nineties now. So many good times, mostly dancing up a storm, in both the old and this ‘new’ building. We are so lucky to live in a great community like Aurora with so many wonderful friends and neighbours. I intend to contribute more, if allowed, so be warned.
