IMPORTANT FLU CLINIC CHANGES
Terrace Bay Flu Clinic is Wednesday, November 4, we hope many families will come out. You will drive up to the parking lot, be given a number and then go inside as a vehicle for your shots, when it is your turn. This will help us control the vehicles and register people in order! With COVID we are only allowed so many people in the gym at one time, so there will be a wait. However, this time could be used as fun time to play a game as a family, or to talk about your day.
With Halloween fast approaching, TBDHU is providing everyone with recommendations to celebrate safely. Halloween traditions, including trick-or-treating, are important activities for mental and social well being, but it is important to take extra precautions if you choose to participate. Staying outside is recommended. Outdoor activities are generally safer and considered low risk. However, even outdoors, you must proceed with caution and take steps to lower the risk. Check out the TBDHU website for the Halloween Guidelines Stay Safe, and enjoy the evening!
Due to Covid-19 provincial regulations, we regret to inform residents that they will be unable to attend in person the Remembrance Day Ceremony. We invite everyone to join us virtually for the Remembrance Day Ceremony at 10:57am on November 11th, 2020. Click on this link for the LIVE STREAM REMEMBRANCE DAY CEREMONY.
The Cenotaph will be open to the general public after 11:30am to pay their respects.
We encourage residents to take two minutes of silence at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month to remember the sacrifices made by so many.
Lest We Forget.
