Dear ASC Members,
We trust that everyone is staying safe during this COVID-19 time. As you may be aware, the number of CORONA cases is on the rise in Ontario and elsewhere and that the Ontario Government has imposed a modified Phase – 2 lockdown. As a result, we regret to inform you that we had to cancel our Navratri Raas Garba event as well as our Diwali function. The future events like Anavil Mela may have to be cancelled as well if the Covid situation does not change.
The last Anavil Directory was published two years ago and under the normal circumstances we would have published a new directory this time. However, we felt that it wasn’t fair for us to ask our sponsors to advertise in today’s depressed business environment. It would also be a challenge to distribute the directory to the members in absence of a large gathering such as Diwali function.
However, we must continue to update the database and may be share with the members a limited version of directory information to make it easy to stay in touch with each other particularly in today’s time. To that end, we encourage you to send your update via our website. We hope to distribute updated name, phone number and email address file in late November via email. Here are two ways you can submit your update.
Click on or copy and paste the following link. Fill out the entire form, enter the security code at the bottom then click on “SEND UPDATED INFORMATION”.
Alternatively, you can log on to www.anavilsamajcanada.com then from the top menu click on “ABOUT ANAVIL SAMAJ” then in the drop down menu click on DIRECTORY UPDATES then fill out the entire form, enter the security code at the bottom then click on SEND UPDATED INFORMATION.
Please stay safe and take care of our senior members. Here are some guidelines given by the health authorities that will help us all staying safe during this Pandemic.
Limit trips outside of home, except for essential purposes only such as work where it is not possible to work from home, school, grocery shopping, medical appointments, and outdoor healthy physical activity;
In addition, travel to other regions in the province, especially from higher transmission to lower transmission areas, should only be for essential purposes;
Practice physical distancing of at least two meters with those outside your household;
Wear a face covering when physical distancing is a challenge or where it is mandatory to do so; and
Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly; and following gathering limits and rules.
Your 2020-22 Executive Committee.
