The Leads Played Among Us

Thank you

This is a video recorded and edited by our youth leads to say thank you to our front-liners, necessary workers, to our family, and to anyone risking their lives to maintain a functioning and working society. Thank you, to those that stay at home during this time and for following the safety guidelines. We encourage those who have not been practicing social distancing to start doing so, we are fighting this pandemic together, as a society and as a community.
