FOR YOUR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION!!!!
COLDWATER, MARCH 16, 2021
FROM ITS INCEPTION THE EBY YOUTH AND FAMILY CENTER HAS ALWAYS TRIED TO PUT THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF ITS VOLUNTEERS AND THE KIDS WHO PARTICIPATE IN ITS FLAGSHIP PROGRAM, FRIDAY NIGHT ALIVE (FNA) FIRST. FOR THAT REASON FNA HAS BEEN A “SAFE PLACE” FOR OUR KIDS IN THE BRANCH COUNTY AREA FOR MANY YEARS.
EVEN THOUGH WE REGRET NOT BEING ABLE TO SPEND TIME WITH OUR FNA KIDS, THE EBY YOUTH AND FAMILY CENTER EXECUTIVE BOARD HAS MADE THE DIFFICULT DECISION TO SUSPEND FNA FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS DUE TO ONE OF OUR FNA VOLUNTEER BEING DIAGNOSED POSITIVE TO COVID-19 AND THEREFORE WE WILL FOLLOW THE CDC’S GUIDELINES WHICH STATE “THE CDC CONTINUES TO ENDORSE QUARANTINE FOR 14 DAYS AND RECOGNIZE THAT ANY QUARANTINE SHORTER THAN 14 DAYS BALANCES REDUCED BURDEN AGAINST A SMALL POSSIBILITY OF SPREADING THE VIRUS. THE CDC WILL CONTINUE TO EVALUATE NEW INFORMATION AND UPDATE THE RECOMMENDATIONS AS NEEDED.”
CHRIST SAID, “BE AS WISE AS SERPENTS AND AS HARMLESS AS DOVES.”
WE UNDERSTAND THAT DURING THIS TIME OF UNCERTAINTY PLACES LIKE FNA HELP MAINTAIN A SEMBLANCE OF NORMALCY FOR OUR KIDS AND HOPE TO BE ABLE TO BRING IT BACK AFTER THESE TWO WEEKS. IN THE MEAN TIME MAY GOD BLESS, PROTECT AND KEEP US ALL SAFE.
IN CHRIST LOVE,
THE EBY YOUTH AND FAMILY CENTER EXECUTIVE BOARD MEMBERS

We are in need of volunteers to help! There is a definite need for this program and the growing number of youth we are seeing is a testament to this, so if you could spare a few hours on a Friday Night to come help us we would appreciate it and so would the youth of this community!
