Well we’re going with safety first and decided to cancel our meetings for the foreseeable future. However, we may have an opportunity to contribute individually to help our community in need. Sheepscot General reached out to ask if Whitefield Cares would be willing to help drive groceries to people who are unable to get out on their own. They are hoping to work with the Superette to figure out who needs help and we could simply pick up an order and deliver it to an address, without going inside or really having contact with anyone. If you would be willing to do so, please let us know via the Whitefield Cares contact form or email. I’m not sure whether we can make this work but we can certainly try!
Meantime our little subcommittee working on the survey has a draft and which is circulating for more input. We will send that out soon and we can all look forward to collecting survey responses once this virus passes us by! Stay home and safe everyone.
Oops! The January 2020 Newsletter went out with the wrong date for the February meeting of Whitefield Cares! It’s not February 4th, it’s really February 12th at 4:00 PM in the Whitefield Elementary School Library. We’ll send out a reminder email a few days before the meeting, with a proposed agenda. Hope to see you there!
Our next meeting of the Whitefield Cares! volunteer group will be on January 15 at 4:00 PM at the Whitefield Elementary School library. Please note the earlier meeting time – the suggestion was made that older residents of Whitefield might be more inclined to join us if we meet earlier in the day so we’re giving that a try! Please join us!

The next meeting of the Whitefield Cares! group is scheduled for December 4 at 6:00 PM at the Whitefield Elementary School. Everyone is welcome. Our primary focus will be aging in Whitefield and Tony Marple has contacted several groups that will send representatives for our discussion, much like our last meeting.
Something to think about: a suggestion was made that we should hold our meetings during the day to encourage older residents to attend who may not like driving at night. The downside is it would make it difficult for people who are working to attend. What do you think? We can discuss at the next meeting.
You’ll find this and future meetings of Whitefield Cares! on our Events and Activities calendar. It’s a Google calendar which you can add to your own personal calendar!
