The Seniors Housing Society extend thanks to our wonderful community for the support we have been receiving. A big thank you to the Coastal Communities Credit Union for a grant this year from the Legacy fund. It was a very fine community moment to be in a room full of
representatives from the many volunteer groups who were receiving grants. Our community is run with care by volunteers - many of them
are not known publicly for the work they do. To the local committee who chose this year's grant recipients, thank you again for your
volunteer time and your careful and thoughtful selection.
The Board would like to thank Yellow Dog Trading: Gerry, the staff and their many generous customers who contributed funds to Seniors
Housing - last week, we received a donation of $1000 from them.
In March, we will have several open houses of one of the units. Please come out for a tour and meet some of the Board members. If you are interested in applying in the next few years to live in Seniors
Housing, we would like to know who you are. If we apply for funding from BC Housing for the third duplex, it is always important to show we have potential tenants. You can add your name to the list without making a committment. Watch the local news for our fundraising events over the next months.
