JFC News & Updates
As summer draws to a close, the Judith Fisher Centre stays busy as ever with regular use by the Women's Choir, meditation group, Pia's massage therapy, Daniela's Spanish classes, qRD, Islands Trust, and more! Heading into fall, we have a few special events to share with the community.
At 1pm on October 15th, the Judith Fisher Centre will be showing two short films about Pat Forbes and her family - "Auntie Culture" and "The Royal Eight." Seating is limited, so please contact Sandy Morrison to reserve a spot at firstname.lastname@example.org / 8560. Entrance by donation.
On October 22nd, The Lasqueti Last Resort Society will be hosting a tea party in conjunction with a puzzle and book sale fundraiser at the Community Hall. There will be tea and coffee, cookies, cakes, and of course books! If you have books you would like to donate, you can either drop them inside the health centre during regular office hours (11am - 3pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays) or leave them outside under cover in the designated book drop container. If you have a lot of books or need help moving them, please get in touch, and one of our volunteers will be happy to come and help. For more details, please contact the JFC at email@example.com / 8891, or Pia at firstname.lastname@example.org / (250) 818-9631.
Last for the calendar: Island Health will hold a vaccination clinic at the Judith Fisher Centre on November 24th & 25th. Please call (833) 838-2323 to schedule an appointment. As always, nurse Dianne will be available to help anybody experiencing difficulty booking an appointment, and can be reached by text or voicemail at (250) 240-5712.
Work was recently completed on the new propane boiler system announced earlier this year, bringing a new era of stable heating, emissions reductions, and labor savings. Looking towards the future, we are still building plans to upgrade our battery bank, solar capacity, and twin the new propane system. Please contact us for more information on our infrastructure plans and needs!
For 20 years, the Lasqueti Last Resort Society has benefited from the generosity of our community to provide an ever-growing set of resources, including medical services, holistic healthcare, elder housing, office space, event space, and support for Lasqueti’s emergency services. Your tax-deductible donation will help us continue to provide, improve, and expand these offerings for years to come, and we are grateful for your support.
To learn more about our programs and facilities, to become a member, or to make a donation, please email email@example.com, or (250) 333-8891.
