Important: Covid-19 Update

Health Canada and the World Health Organization (WHO) have now issued recommendations to" Self Isolate" for 14 days following any international travel, including the United States.
This is a time when we all need to pull together, as a community, to do our part in helping to stop the spread of the Covid19. We must be mindful of Club members as well as our own family members who are most at risk.
The best effort any of us can make in supporting those who are “Self Isolating” is to support their efforts to keep us all safe by helping out with walking their pets, getting groceries, picking up medications etc., to help not only them, but all of us, get through this pandemic. While we are not responsible for the conduct of others, even within our community, we can do our part to limit the spread of this virus that is affecting the entire globe and taking lives. Hopefully this health crisis will pass sooner than later.
If you know of any member who needs the support of our SYC community, please let the office know so that the Club can respond appropriately.
Please stay safe and hopefully all of us will be able to get together soon.
The office will be closed for 30 days. You can talk to Wendy from the porch and she will assist you
Anyone who still owes money can still pay by Etransfer or a mailed check.
SYC will wave the 30 day suspension for anyone who cant make it into the office. Please call the office Tues, Wed, Thur.
