This Tuesday, after the madness of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, is Giving Tuesday in Canada, a “opening day of the giving season, when everyone can share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others” (from the GivingTuesday website).
For me, it is a really timely moment of reflection as we begin our Soldier Information Card Project in the Grace Schmidt Room. I am truly grateful for the over 80 volunteers who have pledged their time, effort and support in getting our Soldier Information Card project off the ground. I am in awe of their generosity, commitment and sense of community in helping the Library honour the lives of the military service people of Waterloo County.
To our project volunteers, I say ‘thank you’. You are are the heart of the Grace Schmidt Room.
