Remembrance day-2019REMEMBRANCE DAY NOVEMBER 11, 2019

Chilliwack Senior Peer Counsellors pays tribute to all of the brave men and women who have served our country. We remember all those who served, volunteered, sacrificed, and died for our freedom. We wear our poppies proudly in honour of those who fought so hard for what we have today.

“They shall not grow old, as we that are left
grow old: age shall not weary them, nor the
years condemn. At the going down of the sun
and in the morning, we will remember them.”

-Laurence Binyon, “Ode of Remembrance”

Have you turned in your Chilliwack Senior Peer Counsellors Monthly Time Sheet lately? CSPC collects our Monthly Time Sheets to keep track of the invaluable hours of time and support that our volunteers provide to seniors in the community. It is important that our volunteer records are submitted and up to date as our Society depends on the data to record an accurate representation of the volunteer work that CSPC facilitates. CSPC submits this information to the Government and other agencies to maintain our Society standing and receive funding. Monthly Time Sheets can be dropped off at the office or emailed directly to the CSPC Statastician, Charlie Lenz, at cspc.statastician@gmail.com.
