Give from the heart—save a life! is the motto for the Club 55+ campaign to raise money for the purchase of a defibrillator.
The club is asking for donations of re-gifting items, such as china, silver, jewellery, or small household items. These items will be sold and raffled off to help buy an automatic external defibrillator for the parish.
Donations can be dropped off in the parish hall before or after all weekend Masses on November 15/16, and at the Live, Learn, Laugh and Lunch get-together on Thursday, November 20.
The first session of the Live, Laugh, Learn & Lunch program organized by Club55+ was held on Thursday, October 23. The event featured a catered lunch and two guest speakers from St. John Ambulance.
Shawn McLaren, Director of Operations, and James Patterson, Community Services Coordinator, spoke on the topic “Emergency Action Plan”.
The 10-session series of talks is supported by a grant from the Government of Ontario.
