MS Bike Ride… Virtually..!

Dr. Jim Noiles

Hi everyone:

Our friend Val H had the best doctor… Jim Noiles. While Jim retired a few years ago, he has continued to stay active and helping others. One of the things he’s done over the years is the MS Bike Ride. He’s on a virtual team this year raising funds to beat Multiple Sclerosis. If you’re interested in donating to the cause, check out the ride through Jim’s fundraising page here.

Best wishes on the ride Jim!

Wash Your Hands!

Correct hand washing is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of infection, virus and disease. WorkSafe BC provides a great video on correct hand washing technique. Check it out:

BC Non-profit Housing Survey

Hi Everyone:

Please add your voice to the direction of Inclusive Housing in BC by completing this survey for the BC Non-Profit Housing Association.

Why it’s important:

BCNPHA and Community Living BC have partnered on a survey to learn more about the housing needs, demands, and preferences of adults with a developmental disability who are living in B.C. While we know there is a need for more affordable, accessible, and inclusive housing for adults with a developmental disability in the province, filling out this survey will help us to better understand and plan for that need. 

BCNPHA, 2020

The survey can be found here.

Goodbye dear friend…..

Mary Nicholas

It is with much sadness and heavy heart that we announce the passing of our dear friend Mary Nicholas. Our friendship with Mary started 25 years ago and we have all been blessed to receive her kind and gentle guidance. She has made us better people. We will miss her dearly and will always remember her fondly. There will seldom be a spring breeze that won’t bring her gentle intention in its warm embrace.

Fire!

Hey everone:

Check this out – we were lucky to have the Kelowna Fire Department come and teach a group of us to use fire extinguishers…. above is a pic of the folks who came out to learn how to use a fire extinguisher properly.
