We were hoping this news might not be necessary. Unfortunately we heard from Camp Merrywood's Manager, Jacques Schryer, that our annual sweat equity trip must be cancelled for this spring. 
We received this message from Jacques:
"For over 40 years the members of the Rotary Club of Belleville have been making the trek to Merrywood for there annual work weekend in helping getting camp ready for the campers. With all that is happening with covid-19 with new legislation coming out tomorrow to keep this virus from spreading even more it is best that we cancel this year weekend.
We need to stop the spread if we hope to have camp this summer.
I will miss everybody who come up to help it’s always greatly appreciated by myself and the campers.
We will keep in touch."
Of course this is disappointing and is the best decision to ensure the camp can open for the kids who look forward to their time there. 
We will let the club know if we are lucky enough to reschedule our work trip to Merrywood.
Thanks to Tracy and Shannon for the work they have already done to prepare for this years weekend.
