The Haldimand 4-H Book Club began in March at the Cayuga Public Library prior to March Break. Shortly after that first meeting, the province was in a State of Emergency due to COVID-19. In response, the club switched to online meetings via Zoom and continued through social isolation. For the club Achievement Project leaders Marie Peart and Stephanie Huitema asked members to write an essay about “Your COVID experience and what role 4-H Book Club played in it” to be published in The Haldimand Press. This week’s essay is by Nicholas Warbick.
