BURLINGTON, ON

 

Later today Premier Doug Ford will set out the details on a four week Stay at Home order.

We’ve been down this road before, which doesn’t make it easier.

The specifics of the order are not yet known – the Premier is expected to make an announcement during the day.

Reports are that the Stay at Home order will be effective at midnight.

Feeding people who are not able to get out is going to be just a little more difficult for the Food Bank.

Unfortunately, due to the lock-down measures last Saturday the Teen Tour Band Boosters Spring Food Drive was postponed – groups outdoors need to be 5 or less so it made it impossible to proceed.

If you had picked up some food donations and weren’t able to drop off, please consider dropping them off in any grocery store’s food bank bin – or drop off at a local fire hall. You can even mark teen tour band on the bag and we can keep track of donations in lieu of the Teen Tour Band.

The Burlington Teen Tour Band is the oldest continually operating municipally-sponsored youth band in Canada and participates in many international parades, bursting with national pride. They have been Canada’s musical ambassadors since 1947.
