Update for Seniors on Wheels Riders

Hello Everyone,

Kindly note that due to the changing weather and snow this afternoon, expect delays in the afternoon due to slower traffic.  There have been changes and some parents are choosing  to pick up their children today from school.

This might also affect the Seniors being picked up from community care this afternoon.

Please notify us of any changes as early as possible, so we can avoid any further delays. Be safe out there everyone. It is a Winter Wonderland.
