Union for jail corrections officers appreciates donated handmade masks

Posted 6 April 2020 at 2:24 pm


It is heartwarming to read and hear about the great deeds being done by the community during this current period of uncertainty. Communities in Orleans County have a long history of responding in times of need and despair.

Recently each correction officer and staff member at the Orleans County Jail received a handmade facemask to aid in protecting against the Covid-19 virus. On behalf of Council 82 – Local 2966, I would like to express our gratitude and publicly acknowledge Kim Lockwood (her brother Terry Weaver, a retired Sergeant from the Orleans County Jail) for donating the materials and Lynda Standish for making the facemasks.

Their thoughtfulness and generosity provide hope and encouragement during these dubious days. Thank you for thinking of us, your efforts are greatly appreciated.
