The Yukon BC Command of the Royal Canadian Legion delivered a cheque for $3000 to the Seniors Housing Project on April 16th. Local Legion Branch 154 executive Tom Vaniderstine, Carol Ann Terreberry, and Leonard Lamb presented the grant cheque to Ken Duncan on stage at the coffee house. Many thanks for this donation and for the local Legion’s assistance in applying for the grant. These funds are much appreciated.
We are grateful to Amped on Nutrition for their donation to the Silent Auction at the Coffee House. Our apologies for leaving your name off the list of supporters published in the last edition.
Also thanks to Blaine Smith for his help moving topsoil with his Bobcat. Thanks to the Garden Club for the donation of plants and the dozen volunteers who arrived on a beautiful morning in April to complete the planting. The Garden Club are also donating the balance of the fencing for the vegetable garden. Is there anyone in the community with carpentry skills, who would be willing to install 6 - 4x4 posts in concrete, to help complete the garden construction? Please contact Val 285 2841 if you can help with the fencing posts.
Quadra Seniors Housing AGM will be on Wednesday June 29th at the community centre 7pm in the main hall. The Board will have financial statements prepared for review by Society members. Also, at the AGM, the Board of Directors would like to formally thank the corporate donors who have supported the project over the last few years. Most of the funding for this project was raised in our community, with local and outside help from several agencies. We would like to acknowledge these very important donations.
