With Potton now classified as part of the red zone and with the Covid pandemic continuing to wreak havoc on the best laid plans, the Missisquoi North Volunteer Centre (CABMN) youth program animators are re-inventing ways to keep in contact with the youth. Social media and platforms like Zoom make it easier to hold meetings but what about those personal touches that remind the youth that they are a part of something special where they are valued and missed? For Ethan Ball and Eleanor Cote who coordinate and animate the youth programs in Potton the efforts in staying connected to the youth is proving to be both challenging and invigorating.
Weekly reminders have found the two making home deliveries to the youth (and sometimes their siblings) where a surprise has been presented outside their door on Saturdays. The first week’s package included treats, a handwritten letter, photos, a questionnaire…, the second week the animators made chocolate filled croissants, created their own “mock” bakery label and brought boxes of delicious treats to the youth and this past Saturday a pizza and french fry lunch (purchased at the Resto Bolton) was delivered to each door including a portion for any sibling also living in the house.
