COVID-19 Newsletter, Volume 10


A Message from C4K

Dear C4K Family,

With Summer weather upon us and schools winding down their online programs, we’ve restarted the planning for this Summer season at C4K. There are so many unknowns that we’ve had to put some previous plans on the shelf. However, we’ve learned a lot over the last couple of months and know we’ll have some exciting opportunities to share in the coming weeks.

Foremost on our minds is the health and safety of our community. We will be making every effort to offer flexible programming that both conforms to government guidelines and allows members / volunteers to participate in a way that makes them most comfortable.

We miss you!  Stay safe and in touch.

Sincerely,
Kala, Tricia, Jill, and Colin
