Serenity Volunteer E-Blast

What's happening in August.....

Therapeutic Touch Level I Training

Therapeutic Touch is used by health professionals, holistic practitioners, therapists, counsellors, clergy, educators and private individuals in hospitals, hospices and palliative care units. Now, thanks to our own Melinda Whitehead, a Recognized Teacher from the Therapeutic Touch Network of Ontario, you are being given an opportunity to receive Level I certification.

The 8 hour training will be held Thursday, August 22nd at the St. Thomas Christian Church o Wellington Street in St. Thomas, beginning at 8:30 am. Lunch and morning coffee will be included.

Pre-registration with a $35 fee will need to be received at the Resource Centre by Monday, August 19th. Don't miss out on this great learning opportunity!!


CALLING FOR TEEN SUPPORTERS........ due to the overwhelming number of kids who have registration for our Grief Camp next week, we would like to engage one or two more teen assistants to help out. Have you experienced the death or illness of someone close to you? Are you able to empathize with children who have? Do you need volunteer hours? Send us a message so that we can talk more........

Capital Campaign gets a boost!!

Thanks to the 2010 IPM and the Legacy Committee and volunteers, we were given this gift of $50,000 toward our campaign for a residential hospice. Donna Lunn (far R - also our Board Vice President) was there to present for the IPM to Mary Lou Stanley (far L), President of the Board of Directors. Standing to the left of me in the middle is Francine Yolkowskie. What a great day!
