The rainy skies parted this evening just in time for folks to gather outside the Caledon Inn for the annual AGM for Caledon Community Services. A truly amazing organization CCS provides crisis support, adult English classes, employment services, seniors support, and of course the familiar Chez Thrift and ReUstore. CCS is in the business of helping people help themselves. That message resonated when Executive Director Monty Laskin stood at the podium and talked about community and about how the staff and volunteers truly understand what community is. But it was never more clearly understood than it was in those brief moments when two wonderfully articulate women, who had been recipients of CCS’s efforts, bravely took the microphone, and stole our hearts, with their stories of how CCS had impacted their lives. You are remarkable women and you brought tears to our eyes. And CCS…….your community thanks you.
