(Note stand by for more information to be announced on the out come of this meeting)
Here is a message from the SW Guild President
Hi All - School District 46 and the SCRD has taken steps to reduce public gatherings. Therefore Guild meetings are cancelled until further notice. The following link is one that I have found most helpful in explaining why we need to self-isolate. This is really worth watching.
Nonetheless, we are fortunate to be woodworkers on the Sunshine Coast. First, we are fortunate to have great hobbies to work on indoors in 'self-isolation'. These are opportunities to improve our woodworking skills and have the satisfaction of making things that are functional, creative and beautiful.
Second, the heath care authorities have encouraged us to get out of doors as it is one of the safest places you can be. We live in a beautiful place to take advantage of parks and hiking trails or even just go for a walk in your neighbourhood. See this link:
Third, it is important to stay in touch with others. Being in self-isolation does not mean being lonely and depressed. Call a fellow Guild member to see what they are building, say thank you and give a word of encouragement to a healthcare worker you know, call or email family and friends.
One other word of advice is don't listen to or watch too much news! Watch enough to stay informed but dwelling on it is not a good thing. Instead, watch a woodworking video and make something!
