The Meeting Place Tobermory News Essential Services and More Open During January

Submitted by Noreen Steinacher

We hoped we would not be in this shutdown again with all its impacts on social well-being, physical and mental health, but we are. Everyone is agreed it’s necessary at least until January 23rd. 

The Meeting Place in Tobermory continues to be open safely for Food Bank, Tuesdays 1-3pm and Eat Local food pick up Thursdays, 10:30 – 11:30am; both services are set up for ‘at the door access’ with volunteers on hand. The mini gym and community space for groups at The Meeting Place are temporarily closed. 

While some things have to wait, other exciting things are popping up. Look for the article (see page 3) on the Good To Go Guided Meal program starting soon.
