A letter to volunteers from Paul Austin . . .

Hi Folks,

We miss you!

This unprecedented, life-changing event has brought everything to a halt. I often think of my parents that weathered the depression and World War II and how they survived the horror. My mother often spoke of the German U-boat that was sighted in the harbor of Belfast, Maine where she grew up. Those were scary times. As are the recent months.

We have been fortunate in the years since the world was consumed by the war. We will get through this. We will return to some level of normalcy, perhaps for the better. I am anxious to return to the house, working with all of you once again.

NBHfH is following the directives to stay home at least through the month of April. We are taking the directives one month at a time. It may be harder for our affiliate since the majority of our volunteers tend to be in the age class of sixty and up. We cherish you with all the energy and time you have donated helping us to help families in our communities.

We sincerely hope you; your families and friends have not been sickened by the virus. We want you to know that you are in our thoughts as we experience the pandemic together. Practice wellness and stay safe. We will see you soon.

Representing NBHfH Board of Directors and Staff,

Paul H. Austin

PS - We will reevaluate the situation in early May.
