March 26, 2020. We’re back from Florida, and now in self-isolation. I’m calling it a ‘staycation’, and we’re having a relaxing time. We’ve caught up on laundry and unpacking, and now are busy doing lots of little projects that we never seem to have time for. And of course we are also reading, doing crossword puzzles, and watching TV. These unprecedented times are also encouraging people to stay more in touch. I’m even doing a daily update on our self-isolation on Twitter (@HearPEI if you are interested).
Today’s posting will be an update on some of the previous postings, and some cancellations.
Cancellations… The April 28, 2020 meeting is cancelled, and there will not be a spring session of speech reading classes. (See https://theauralreport.wordpress.com/upcoming-events/ as more information comes in over the coming months.)
Great news….. A third church on Prince Edward Island now is equipped with a hearing loop. O’Leary-West Cape United Church in O’Leary – Hearing loop access is available throughout the sanctuary. Address: 5 Barclay Road, O`Leary PE. (See https://theauralreport.wordpress.com/places-on-pei-equipped-with-a-hearing-loop/ for a list of looped places on the Island.)
Sad news…. One of our 2019 Hear PEI Accessibility Advocates, Ruth Walsh, died on March 18, 2020 (see www.dawsonfh.com/obituaries/145132). Ruth was a tireless volunteer for the community, a loyal and good friend. She will be sorely missed.
