There is good reason that hashtags such as #Covidiots and #CoronaVillains have been showing up as a pandemic sweeps the globe.
People who hoard groceries and supplies, or choose to ignore government warnings to go directly into isolation after crossing the border, or those who take advantage of others through various coronavirus scams have rightfully drawn the ire of society during this crisis.
Let me get this straight. Our parents and grandparents fought wars and lived with next to nothing in the depression and it’s too much to ask people to stay indoors, or not deprive others of everyday needs?
Thankfully, those people don’t represent all of society in these uncertain days and are making the best of the situation by helping others. Jackynn Miller, the head professional at South Muskoka Curling and Golf Club in Bracebridge, Ont., is one of them.
Well that was fast !!????????????????

With so many people losing jobs and filing for unemployment, Food Banks Canada is concerned about the shortage of food supplies and loss of volunteers due to adherence to social distancing guidelines.
As a result, Food Banks Canada has a goal of raising $150-million in donations, so Miller is calling out professionals, superintendents and other industry colleagues on Twitter.
PGA Tour players Mackenzie Hughes and Corey Conners are among the recent names to jump on board and at last look, she had 201 people to donate.
Her hashtags are the kind we enjoy seeing in turbulent times – #letskeepitgoing and #Wereallinthistogether.
