A friendly reminder about the Senior Peer Counseling Training session that Helen will be teaching. Classes begin Sept. 11th. If you’re interested it’s not too late to sign up. It’s a free training and a great way to give back and meet some other dedicated new folks.
What a great crowd was there on a beautiful summer afternoon.
We had two BBQ’s going at the same time. David was on one and Ken was on the other. Served up a lot of burgers and hot dogs. There was dessert treats too. It was great.
Susan will be working in the office along with Bob.
Good bye to Mary Erickson who is moving on to other things like traveling and a big thank you to Mary or all her efficient work in the office.
A big welcome to the new volunteers. Their graduation is on Oct 25th, 2017 at 11 am at CCS. All existing volunteers are welcome to attend.
This is a great class! So Glad you’re joining with us on our mission to help Chilliwack’s seniors. Thank you all.
A Cat Story
Before Irene Lawrin took over the care of his cat Mercedes, she was groomed by Krystal Raddatz, who came to Bobs place. While her friend held Mercedes down gently, Krystal clipped her nails front and back and combed all the knots out of her long hair which seemed to be impossible to get out. All for 30$. If you have a cat with problem knots in her fur Krystal Raddatz is the lady to call: 604-798-3159
He did this before leaving for Mexico. He is going there for six months. He wants to see if the radishes down there are really are as big as a man’s fist.
He wishes everyone joy and happiness.
