Youth canvasser impresses resident

Dear editor, Recently I had the most charming young man at my door canvassing for CAS-hh (Cancer Assistance Services of Halton Hills). His name is Robert McNeilly, he's about 13 years old, and he told me his best friend's mom is Karen Vito, one of CAS-hh's volunteer campaign captains. As I am on the board of directors for CAS-hh, I invited him in to chat while my husband went searching for his wallet. Robert seemed impressed when I told him of my involvement. Not being one to pass up on an opportunity, I asked him if he knew about the upcoming Crazy Outhouse Race (May 27). He had, but only in that he heard we are looking for helpers to set up, and was glad he had met me because he wanted to know how he could be involved. At first, I was a little surprised to see such a young canvasser, but after some thought I got that `warm and fuzzy' feeling-- how great to see kids involved. Kudos to Karen Vito for getting the kids away from the video games and TV and doing something meaningful. We should all be very proud of this young man's efforts and of all the other young people of Halton Hills who work tirelessly to help out. They are our future, and I, for one, am glad they're out there. Joanne Thompson, Georgetown
