Welcome to Del & Mid Vaughan, our newest Partners. After retiring, Del & Mid built their home on the lake in Eagle Bay. Sadly, Del passed away in December 2012 from cancer. Mid now lives in Salmon Arm during the winter and enjoys the lake with her family in the summer.
We are very grateful for the caring generosity of people like Del & Mid Vaughan.
Frank Barnard’s $10,000 donation to the Sorrento & Area Community Health Centre (via the Shuswap Hospital Foundation) will assist in completing the second stage renovations to their exam rooms. They have also constructed a memorial wall to recognize community donors who have made the health centre possible. The Frank Barnard Memorial Tree was painted by local artist Judy Frederickson.
The centre is located above Munro’s Sorrento Prescriptions on the TransCanada Highway in Sorrento and is a partnership between Interior health and the Sorrento area.
The Lions Club of Salmon Arm made another generous donation of $10,700 bringing them up to the Patron category. They were presented with a Gold Fish which will be placed on the Foundation Recognition Wall at the hospital. Pictured are Lions Club President John Lund, Lions Club Treasurer Helen Cheeseman and Lions Club Director Hugh Hatchard. Thank you to the Lions Club of Salmon Arm!
Linda Venter, owner of the Chadalin Medi-Spa, presented the foundation with a cheque for $1,257, proceeds from the event ‘Stop and Smell the Roses’ which provided a free spa service for men and women battling cancer. Their successful event also included a makeover and photo session. Thank you to the staff of Chadalin Medi-Spa and everyone who participated!
Aileen Cruickshank placed a fish on the Recognition Wall for her husband Alvin Cruickshank.
Al was the second oldest of a family of nine children, born and raised in Owen Sound, Ontario. He took early retirement from a large printing firm, where he was Foreman of the Electrical and Maintenance Department. He decided to move from Ontario to Salmon Arm, BC in May, 1989 to be closer to his only child, daughter Terry Adair, and his only grandchild, grandson Jamie Adair. He enjoyed golfing, lawn bowling and curling. Alvin died on July 12, 2001.
