Many thanks to Brenda Piat and Shastri Ablack for their years of dedicated service. You will both be missed!


INTERNET SAFETY EVENT On April 17 Northern Frontenac Community Services, in collaboration with other local agencies, hosted another successful Partners with Parents event at Sharbot Lake High School. The guest speaker was Paige Whiting, a local O.P.P. Officer. Paige spoke about Internet Safety to a group of parents that represented about 20 local families. It was an informative and helpful evening. Prior to the presentation a light dinner was served and during Paige's talk the children were entertained elsewhere.

VOLUNTEERS APPRECIATED On April 16, despite a terrible snow storm, NFCS held their annual Volunteer Appreciation Day. Approximately 100 people gathered for a turkey dinner at St. James Major Catholic Church Hall. Presentations were made to all of our volunteers from the past year, and special recognition was given to our Volunteers of the Year. This year Nicole LeClair was honoured for her outstanding dedication and work at the Child Centre and Tom and Eileen Christenson for their help with the Community Support Program that provides support for seniors in our community. Our thanks to all of the volunteers who braved the bad road conditions that day. To those who were unable to come: your presence was missed.

WOULD YOU HELP SENIORS? Our Community Support Services Program currently has seniors who would appreciate visits or phone calls from volunteers. If you are someone who would enjoy forming a new friendship and helping out in this way we would love to hear from you. Call Catherine or Vikki at 279-3151.
