4K Community Cup Winner for November
Lucille Green

 
Lucille, one of many guitars that blues legend B.B. King gave this name, recently sold at auction for $280,000. For the seniors of Morin-Heights and its surrounding areas OUR Lucille is just as valuable. For her ongoing contributions to her community, Lucille Green is our 4Korners Community Cup winner this month! Though tiny in stature but larger than life, Lucille is the lady in charge of keeping the games moving and the coffee flowing at Cosy Corner. Lucille has the help of several volunteers who make the social gathering for seniors such a success but there is no mistaking that Lucille runs the show.

Since the onset of COVID, things have understandably shut down, leaving the basement of Morin-Heights United Church quiet and some seniors without their one outing a week. Although Lucille keeps busy with her grandchildren right next door and property to maintain, she feels for her members who either do not have family nearby or are in the high-risk category and have been forced to isolate even further. She tells me that it is looking like they will not be able to resume activities until spring at the earliest. Distancing and mask precautions aren’t very practical when you are dealing with many seniors who are hard of hearing. Factor in the inability to offer coffee and snacks due to the new safety protocols for gatherings and The Thrill Is – most definitely – Gone. Thankfully, the spirit of Cosy Corner is kept alive with some members who continue to meet up in their own small bubbles.

Lucille is such a pillar to her community that even Mayor Tim Watchorn reached out to her to see if Cosy Corner needed anything during this time. Not only does Lucille run Cosy Corner, she is also part of the 5-member committee making decisions about Habitat Morin-Heights, the new seniors residence hoping to break ground just behind Chalet Bellevue in Morin-Heights this coming Spring.

B.B. King may have named many guitars Lucille over the years but there is only one Lucille Green and we are happy to honor her with our Community Cup as we wait for things to go back to normal, Someday, Somewhere.
