Janice Ross, Foundation Chair, awarded Rob McKibbon the Paul Harris Plus 5 award last night, April 3, 2018.  In addition to being an enthusiastic Youth Exchange Officer, Rob is a huge supporter of all our fund raisers and work  parties.  We were proud to see him receive this award.
D'arcy White, a local audiologist, spoke about many aspects of hearing loss on Tuesday, April 3.  Causes of hearing loss range from inner ear, outer ear and brain function issues.  She emphasized the importance of testing hearing and getting hearing aids if necessary, to avoid future difficulties. 
Last Tuesday, March 6, our speaker was Shirley Deglan from RCMP Victim Services, shown here with Acting President John Hansen.  She works closely with RCMP and local agencies to assist victims or families of victims through traumatic, emotional and often heart breaking situations.  Shirley and her highly trained volunteers provide a very important service in our community, assisting victims of crime.  They serve as a referral source to get the victims the help they need. They assist with finding funding for services that have a cost.  They support the victims right through the psychological, social, legal and cost issues.
