ARTISTIC PRODUCER FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT 'AGIN DA COVID!', BY WENDY B., ARTS REPORTER, 13 JUNE 2021
So what is going on at the Perth County Community Plex?
Joining other artists and arts workers who have been volunteering within their communities, Eclipse's own Artistic Producer was out battling that dreaded novovirus one jab at a time. Chilina Kennedy was volunteering with pedestrian traffic control and helping individuals move smoothly through the immense recreational centre in Stratford - home base to the biggest jab fest in town. "Its really one jab at a time, but with 50 or so jabbers working at once, and doing 50 people every 5 minutes or so, the lines can get busy and people need to know when to join the constant flow" Chilina noted - ". . .or stay in their cars for a little longer before the slots for their inoculations come open". Chilina was happy to help - and tired after her shift on Sunday - which she will repeat this week. Just seeing her doing the work makes one to break out into song: " When this old world starts getting your down, ...". Keep those jabs coming Canada, and we will come out into the light at the end of the tunnel!
