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!
