This message is to welcome you to the latest Thin
Blue Line newsletter, the second to be assembled by our Board
Chair, Ron Griffis. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to force
us to stay home with the closure on many stores, Legions, bowling alleys
and other gathering places. However,
there appears to be some light at the end of the tunnel: the premiers of
BC, Alberta, Ontario, and Quebec have started to reduce the restrictions in
their provinces. The Maritime
Provinces also appear to have a handle on their latest increases. The numbers of vaccinations to be received
in June and over the summer appear enough to have 70% of first dose
recipients inoculated and more than 50% of second doses given. Just
remember that sometimes the light in the tunnel is a speeding locomotive!
However, please continue to wear a mask, watch
your distancing, and stay within your family unit if possible until it is
time to resume some sort of normalcy.
Please get your vaccinations whenever you are eligible. I hope that various Chapters will be able
to hold Chapter meeting face-to-face within the next couple of months.
I hope that you enjoy this edition of the TBL;
please do let us know whether it is what you expect, or it is not, but also
let us know what your expectations are and how and what we can do to
improve the TBL. Do not be afraid to
contribute stories, trips, or whatever you think our organization needs to
be informed about. This echoes my
plea from April! I hope that
everyone will have a great summer, and can get together with friends,
families, and others.
