Elder’s Update – News and Upcoming Events

Elder’s Island Wide Luncheon will be held at Penelekut Island this month, on Wednesday, February 20. We will be leaving the day before, on Tuesday afternoon, to go for dinner and stay  over-night in Chemainus. We have a full bus.

Change in Meeting Structure

Planning and business will now be done at our Tuesday Elder’s Committee meetings (this is when regular operational decisions will be made by those in attendance) Monthly Luncheons will be a Social activity and for presentations. In the case of meeting for consensus for major decision-making, all Wei Wai Kum Elders on Reserve will be notified of the meeting via phone-call.

Meal program – Do you or anyone you know need meals? For those 65 and over who have difficulty preparing food, who are caregivers to their spouses who have disability, or are ill, or have just come home from hospital. Meals will be frozen and delivered by Kristen as needed. Please spread the word in the community to keep Kristen informed of Elders who have been to hospital or are ill, in need of assistance for meals. Thank You.

Come on out to our next Craft Night February 25th @ 5:30, it’s a fun group, and Nalaga Avis O’Brien is coming to do our second cedar weaving lesson!

Let’s get the community out for some dancing fun and games with lots of prizes! The Elder’s Group, in partnership with Thunderbird Recreation, the KDC 10K running team, and Social Development will be hosting a MUCH MUSIC COMMUNITY DANCE PARTY on Saturday, March 2 from 4pm until 9pm.
