What’s Been Happening at Veiner
On September 15th, we hosted a free BBQ for neighbours living in the Veiner Centre area. The event was a huge success, with neighbours coming together to enjoy delicious food and play yard games. The atmosphere was heartwarming as people reconnected with old friends and made new ones. This BBQ was made possible thanks to the City of Medicine Hat's micro grant, Save-On Foods, and Fresh Co. Their contributions made it possible to bring the community together and create a fun and memorable event.
MLA Justin Wright
We were honored to have MLA Justin Wright visit Unison at Veiner Centre on September 11th. During his visit, we had the opportunity to showcase the various programs and services we offer, all aimed at enhancing the lives of older adults in Medicine Hat and the surround area.
Volunteer Appreciation BBQ
Thank you to everyone who joined us for our volunteer BBQ on September 7th! It was a wonderful opportunity for us to show our appreciation for all the hard work our volunteers do to support seniors in our community. We are grateful to have such dedicated individuals in our midst, and we couldn't do what we do without them.
BBQ at Source For Sports Sports Connection
Thank you to Sports Connection Source for Sports for generously offering us a space to host a BBQ during their annual sale on August 26. We also want to thank Sysco and Real Canadian Superstore for their incredibly generous food donations. Their kindness ensured that every cent raised from BBQ sales went directly towards empowering local seniors to stay active in our community.
Meals on Wheels America Conference
Larry (President & CEO), Karen (Regional Director), and Cori (Veiner Centre Director) attended the 2023 Meals on Wheels America Conference and Expo in Phoenix, Arizona. They met with senior nutrition program leaders from across the United States for hyper-relevant and immersive learning. Stay tuned for some exciting updates that will enhance our Meals on Wheels program in Medicine Hat!
Being Human Services
Thank you staff and clients from Being Human Services! They dedicated their time and effort to help us maintain our spaces. Their tireless work tended to our flower beds, ensuring that they are healthy and vibrant, and disinfected our chairs to keep our space clean and safe for everyone who uses it.
Heidi is one of our newer volunteers who has been with us for six months. She is a driver for Meals on Wheels and a receptionist at the Strathcona Centre. Heidi is always willing to help us out when we are in a pinch and has been called upon at the last minute a few times. We are so grateful to have you as part of the volunteer team.Becoming a volunteer was an easy decision with the love of helping people. Knowing she had a little visit, a wellness check, and delivered a healthy meal for clients makes me feel blessed. It is a wonderful feeling knowing I helped a client in many ways. If Heidi could pick her dream place to live you would find her in a cottage community with water and mountains outside her front door, relaxing and listening to Bruno Mars or country music. Of course, sitting with the one person she admires most, her husband.
Thank you, Heidi, for all your hard work and commitment to volunteering at the Veiner and Strathcona Centre’s.
