After spending the past year interacting online due to the pandemic, Lennoxville and District Community Aid’s seniors men’s group met in the flesh, and not behind a computer screen, at Centennial Park on Friday.
“They have been meeting by Zoom for part of the past year, but not everybody was able to join in, so now they are all meeting together,” said Sylvie Fowlis, director general at Community Aid, an organization that works with elderly folks in the area.
The men’s group gathered under the park’s gazebo, sitting at a distance in foldable camping chairs, wearing masks and cracking jokes. They were accompanied by a Community Aid volunteer, who listened to their concerns and needs for the summer.
