Elder’s Update – News and Upcoming Events

Gilakasla Community! We had a great turnout of Volunteers for our March BINGO fundraiser and Carla’s Chinese food was awesome as usual! We will be accepting items for door  prizes again as our stock has dwindled giving out so many fantastic prizes, thank you in advance!

Are you an Elder (over 65) Who is interested in doing opening prayers and welcome ceremonies for the larger community? Please call Kristen to put your name on the list. Thank you!

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 March 11th @ 5:30, it’s a fun group, and Nalaga Avis O’Brien is coming to do our second cedar weaving lesson!

Our Island-wide Luncheon is in Nanoose Bay this month on March 20th. Kristen will be coming around with the bus at 8:30am for pick-up.
