From Our Chair
Wow! What a year 2020 has turned out to be.
Our world was tipped upside down this year by lockdowns, new rules, masks, social distancing, border closures and even toilet paper shortages! As well as a host of new and differing experiences for a lot of people.
We have welcomed new people to PALS and
sadly said goodbye to others.
