Phone Tree: Please make sure that a cadet is calling you every week. There is valuable information that you should be receiving. As part of the program, you need to learn to advocate for yourself and the only way to do this is to have contact information for cadets who are in your chain of command. It is their responsibility to provide you with the information that you require (or know who to ask to obtain the info). It is your responsibility to make sure that you have both a telephone number and email information for the seniors in your amazing flights to ask these important questions!
Letters to Seniors in Quarantine: Hello cadets, there is an opportunity to connect with some seniors in our community who reside at Chartwell Barrington retirement residence:
The residents who live at Chartwell Barrington would benefit from hearing from the youth in the community. Chartwell Barrington is not allowing visitors to come into the building due to the spread of COVID – 19, this measure is to ensure the safety of our elderly population. As you can imagine this is a very lonely time for our elderly population and they would benefit from our cadets reaching out and sharing everyday experiences with them.
Would you please consider once per week writing a letter to a resident at Chartwell Barrington? They would absolutely love to hear from you. Tell them some jokes. Tell them what you are doing at home to stay happy and healthy, tell them what you are learning in school or what you are doing in Air Cadets. There is a lot you could write about.
Mrs. Squires, who is a part of the SSC and works at the Chartwell Barrington retirement residence has agreed to receive these ’emailed letters’ and disperse them to seniors there.
Please consider the smiles and encouragement this would bring to a resident and how much joy they would receive from this. If you are interested please email FCpl Mena E. at firstname.lastname@example.org with your interest. When we know how many cadets are willing to do this, Mrs. Squires will provide us with the name of a resident to write to.
