Dear Kettles Friends and Family,
The move by the Province of Ontario to Stage 2 and the release of specific guidelines for day camps has opened the opportunity to provide modified swimming and sailing instruction this summer that follows current mandated physical distancing expectations. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer our crafts program at this time.
As is true with just about everything else in 2020, the lessons will look very different. We have to follow provincial mandates and safety protocols set forth by the Royal Lifesaving Society, Sail Canada and the Ontario Sailing Association. We are still working out what that will look like at our facility.
There will be more information in the next week or so. We appreciate your patience and look forward to hearing the young voices booming from The Kettles in the next couple of weeks.
In light of continued restrictions for group meetings, we will be postponing the AGM, BBQ and Silent Auction.
We do have some fun plans for a socially distant Regatta. So please keep Saturday, August 1st booked and we will send out more information as we have it.
Your Kettles Church Board has been meeting regularly this spring to plan for the upcoming season at The Kettles. Since we have seen things starting to open up, we have decided to plan a few weeks at a time. Please mark your calendars for 11 am on Sunday June 28 and Sunday July 5. We will be connecting via Zoom on each of those days.
Our first zoom meeting on June 28 will be for on-line socializing and getting everyone comfortable with the Zoom format. Sunday, July 5 will be our first summer service of 2020, also on Zoom ,led by a long-time Kettles member, John Oldham. John will be joining us from Winnipeg. One of the positives that has come out of this isolation is that we can have John & Marlene join us and our members can join in from anywhere.
We will be communicating regularly the format and dates for the remainder of the summer services via email and on the website. If you wish to be on the Church email list please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yours truly on behalf of the Kettles Association,
Elizabeth Brooks, Lou Carsley, Brian Jarrett, Carolyn Carragher and Troy Comish
