The Rotary Clubs of Picton and Wellington, 99.3 County FM, Kinsman Club of Picton, Kiwanis Club of Picton, and Picton businesses Tim Horton's and Home Hardware have jointly launched the Apricot Ribbon Program to recognize the work and sacrifice of our local Health Care Teams during this pandemic and throughout our lives. 

The program comprises several parts:
  1. Visible Recognition. To demonstrate our county-wide support of the work the Health Care Teams do for all of us, banners will be raised on Picton Main Street and at the Picton Community Centre. Apricot ribbons and signs will dot the landscape on poles, lawns, buildings and more throughout the county.
  2. Personal Recognition. Starting with the 113 staff working at the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital, each person will receive a letter thanking them for their dedication and tireless efforts to keep us safe and healthy. The letter will include a gift card from PIcton Tim Horton’s

    The public is encouraged to nominate additional Health Care workers in the county . The nominee will also receive special recognition. Nominations can be made below or on the Rotary Club of Picton Facebook page.
  3. Doing Our Part. Another way to show our support for the stellar work of our Health Care Teams is to continue to follow the public health guidelines for reducing the spread and impact of the Covid-19 virus. Our ability to reduce the burden on the health care system goes along way to helping those entrusted with managing our health care. We can also personally thank the health care workers we know or meet. 
Apricot ribbons can be picked up at the following locations:
  • RoyalLePage ProAlliance, 104 Main Street, Picton
  • Picton Home Hardware
  • Wellington Home Hardware
  • Green Gables, 286 Main Street, Bloomfield
