Thanksgiving message from Town of Lincoln Mayor Sandra Easton

As we head into the Thanksgiving weekend, we will celebrate another holiday amid the COVID-19 pandemic. While we would normally be preparing to enjoy a meal with family and friends, we are again facing difficult decisions.

It is a challenging time. But I urge you to listen to Ontario government officials and spend the holiday with just the people in your household. 

With provincial daily COVID-19 numbers rising, we must remain vigilant. It is critical that we continue to follow the practices we have maintained over the spring and summer as we face this second wave of the pandemic—limit close contacts, maintain physical distancing, wear a mask and wash your hands.

Though it is difficult to be apart from loved ones at this time, it is a way to keep your friends, family members and neighbours safe. Get creative—gather online for a meal and share why you are grateful for each other, call or video chat with a faraway friend or play a virtual game with another household. Get out by yourself or with your immediate family to bike or hike one of Lincoln’s beautiful trails or walk through a favourite park.

Even during this pandemic, we have much to be thankful for. I am grateful to live in a Town where we care about our neighbours, look out for those less fortunate and work together to create a vibrant, welcoming place to live and work.

I wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving.

Stay safe and healthy,

Mayor Sandra Easton
