  • (Intergenerational) Social Connections: 

    a. RSOOS initiative -- Trinity has gone ahead with their plan for meal deliveries. Anna has done training as a volunteer caller for non-parishioners.

    b. READi investigation – Christine, Helen & Anna have met, along with Trinity and OSCA, with the 3 READi students.  The proposal has focussed on social barriers for seniors.  They are now working on questions that will explore connections or lack thereof.

    c. Community Pillars – The churches all have outreach programs, including a telephone tree being run by Southminster as a support system.  The library is offering programs for children and seniors.  Anna hopes to meet on Zoom with reps of Southminster, Wesleyan & Trinity (perhaps the library and OSCA)
