We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful and peaceful area where many people are resilient and self-sufficient. We have gone through long power outages and major winter storms and came out smiling. Many residents have pantries full of food and know how to prepare meals from scratch. In rural Albert County, we can self-isolate but still walk on a beach, hike in a forest or just sit outside and appreciate the sounds and sights of spring. We don’t need to go out to events to be entertained.
During this state of emergency, we have removed the calendar from the Connecting Albert County website and we’re not listing events in this publication. Also, we are not producing a print version for April as most of our distribution venues are closed or are restricting traffic. We will, however, continue to publish articles at www.ConnectingAlbertCounty.org and share these through social media. As part of our approach to help reduce the feelings of isolation while we remain physically separate, we will also share past stories about rural Albert County on Facebook.
We encourage you to share what you love about rural Albert County on our Facebook page and online. See
If you have extra time right now and would like to volunteer by posting stories or writing articles, please email info@ConnectingAlbertCounty.org.
