Other Announcements

Drivers for Seniors: Seniors Helping Seniors need volunteers for driving a senior to appointments on/off the island. We are especially looking for drivers from Squirrel Cove, but drivers from all areas are welcome. Volunteers are usually reimbursed for gas and ferry costs by the clients. Call Carina6793, if you can help or need a ride. Thank you very much! Someone will be grateful!

Meals on Wheels: Ironwood Place Independent Living offers a variety of frozen prepared meals to seniors. You can choose from their selection of standard classic meals that are prepared daily on-site and flash-frozen.
If you or someone you know could use prepared meals for your freezer – drop by the front desk, 1351 Ironwood Street in Campbell River any day during public hours (but NOT between 11–2) and pick some up! $6/pkg. Cash and carry!
If you’re interested but can’t pick them up yourself, contact Carina6793.
