CCRA Centennial News Distribution Report for February 2019

Wanda Wierzbicki Distribution Manager

Thanks to those who stepped in to help

Now that we are firmly settled into the winter season, it doesn’t seem so bad. The days are getting longer and the sun (when we see it) is out longer.  As of mid-January we haven’t had much snow, which makes walking outside (delivering the newspaper) easier. Most days have been quite pleasant but I am already looking forward to spring and our Spring Dance and Volunteer Appreciation evening.

Last month I mentioned that a number of distributors were off to warmer climates resulting in temporary vacancies in our distribution network. A number of people have stepped forward and volunteered to pick up an additional route. At this time I would like to thank the following people: Denise Bacon (2 routes), Mark Campbell,  Erin and Wade Cole, Rob Elbertsen,  Zinta Erdmanis,  Lori Gagnon, Karen Heisz,  Betty Karsh and Kathy Rowe. Many of these people are on the CCRA executive, which just proves the saying that when you need help, ask a busy person. Thank you!

At this time we have one permanent distribution route available on Lawson Ave., from the Tony Stacey Centre to Meadowvale – only 30 houses. This route takes less than 45 minutes to distribute. If you know of a student who is looking for volunteer hours, this is a great opportunity. Students receive volunteer hours for distributing the CCRA Centennial News 10 times per year. It is also a great opportunity for a retired person to get some steps in and meet their neighbours. If you are interested, please send me an email at

 Remember that high school students can earn one volunteer hour for every month they distribute a route. If you are interested, please send me an email at and I will be in touch.
