Members of our club spent the afternoon of Saturday, March 22 visiting with seniors at Hawthorne Centre in Port Coquitlam. In addition to serving tea and snacks, we also made them cards to ring in the spring season, and our very own Jessica entertained them by playing the violin. Thank you to Chris M., Kevin, Brianne and Rasmeet for also volunteering their time!
Members of our group spent the afternoon running around the Tri-Cities area to perform random acts of kindness for both strangers and people who serve our local communities. Among the tasks that we performed were:
Delivering flowers to workers at Eagle Ridge Hospital
Bringing Timbits to police officers
Giving balloons to young children
Purchasing a hot drink for a Salvation Army volunteer
Serenading a group of strangers
Picking up litter
Thank you to Brianne and Rasmeet for organizing the event, and to Kevin, Anabelle, Eric, Raj, Chantal, Adam, Janelle and Jordan for participating!
Our last day of Reading Buddies for the year with Mrs. Blanchet’s grade 1 and 2 class at Bramblewood Elementary in Coquitlam was on June 20, 2013. We had a great time getting to know all the students and helping them with their reading skills! Thank you to Mrs. Blanchet’s class for being such wonderful students, and for the beautiful handmade cards they gave us on our last day.
Also, a huge thank you to our Secretary, Janelle, for organizing this program for us, and to all the volunteers from our club who helped out throughout the year: Eric, Emi, Danielle, Sarah A, Chris M, Eli, Jordan, Jordyn, Christy, and Kim.
Valentine’s Day marks the start of our new initiative to do random, small acts of kindness for people in our local communities. We’re starting it off by anonymously delivering small bags of chocolates for Valentine’s Day to local businesses and city departments. Each bag of chocolates also contains a card asking the recipient to do a simple, kind deed for someone else. We hope to see these cards circulating in the community and for some Random Acts of Kindness to be taking place in the Tri-Cities!
