Greetings to the many caring souls in Ladysmith.
It has taken some time to get the courage to relate this tale.
I am 90. I have been a member of seniors organizations since the late 1970s and did volunteering, mainly as the sick and visiting.
I get help now through Veterans Affairs so am seen scooting about Ladysmith, enjoying this independence.
However, for the last 10 months, I have frequented the City Hall to beg for help. I am forbidden to park inside the new hall. So, as the rainy season approaches and no shelter is provided, will I have to carry a rock once more to hold the outside toilet door open so I can seek shelter there — again?
I am a 65-year resident of the local area.
