Top of the morning to everyone today!
Today we celebrated no snow, Barry's return, and Erwin's fête!
Peter B gave us an update about scholarships from Monday night, Wednesday night we meet again to do our second school. Arley W is gearing up with Super Reader again, Friday March 24 is Mt. Cheam, I believe Arley has people to help for that day! Stay tuned though, post- Spring Break busy is coming quickly and we will need all hands on deck. A reminder about the Golden Ears fundraiser on Saturday March 25 at the Maple Ridge legion, Dennis is looking for one more member to join them to make the festivity an interclub too- Talk to him if you are interested in attending.
Also the Regional Conference is April 8, please let me know if you are interested in attending, we have 3 thus far and we need to get our paperwork in soon!
Barry B. also gave a run down of his vacation- what a time, he brought back a fundraiser he came across, the picture is below- what a great idea! Does someone have a greenhouse?
Finally, our guest speaker today was Lucy Fraser from Chilliwack Hospice. She came with updates about the services Chilliwack Hospice provides our great community. There are partnerships growing with the First Nations communities, and those networks are proving to be beneficial. Of note, it's nice to hear that their services are being brought into the schools and that AD Rundle has started a grief and loss support group. They have also diversified their assistance programs, and offer cooking classes, bereavement support, grief counselling and suicide counselling to name a few. It was my pleasure to present a cheque to Lucy to help support the continuation of the services Chilliwack Hospice provides.
We wrapped up with Happy Bucks and best wishes for the best of week!
