Valuable Valentines

Dear Editor:

I simply want to say a huge thank you to the staff and students of the various educational facilities in our Fergus/Elora area who took the time to create home made Valentines Day cards as well as deliver bags of candy to residents of some of our seniors’ facilities.

With the necessary visiting restrictions in place and only essential caregivers allowed to visit due to COVID-19, many seniors are missing the visits and outings that they would normally have with family and friends.

Upon my arrival on Feb. 14 to visit with my mother-in-law, she was so thrilled to show me the small gestures that she received from the schools. I want you to know that your thoughtfulness was sincerely appreciated and it brought happiness to many a resident on this special occasion.

Susan Harrop,
