News from St. Jude's: Spring 2019 - Volume 8 Issue 4

St. Jude’s at the Metro

Another successful fundraising night at the Metro Theatre
St. Jude’s annual fundraiser at the Metro Theatre took place last week and while the final tallies aren’t yet in, we can chalk it up another successful event!  Despite the wintry weather, those who braved the snow were rewarded with a warm and cozy time mingling around the silent auction items, partaking the in the cheese and wine and watching the play.  It was wonderful to bring so many people who love and value St. Jude’s together.  There was much love in the room. 

Thanks to our Fundraising committee with a specific mention of Sandey Berry who manned our Silent Auction.  Thanks too, to the many sponsors who donated to and attended the event, and lastly, thanks to all the folks within the St. Jude’s community who came out to support us.

Stay tuned for other events in the upcoming months.

I am sorry to say that I will be leaving St. Jude's as of March 20th, 2019. So I just wanted to take a  moment to thank everyone related to St. Jude's, the families, friends and staff, for the last couple of years. I have truly enjoyed being a part of your lives. Thanks especially to the families who have allowed me to be a part of the wonderful group of people who care for their loved ones. I have been offered an opportunity that I cannot turn down, but I will miss you all very much. St. Jude's is truly a very special place and I know that I will never forget it.

Hello from Recreation
Hello Everyone, It was so nice being able to write 1st day of spring on March calendar. I know we are all anxious to get back to scenic bus trips and walks around the park. In March we will continue with our 11:30 exercise classes led by Lucia, Pete will be in twice a week and we will be having our Java Club on a weekly basis. While waiting for spring to arrive, Recreation and Rehabilitation will be joining forces on Friday afternoon for our weekly Bowling league. I would like to send a special thank you to Anita and Cynthia for running our Tuck Shop. These ladies take turns visiting everyone on both floors and selling little treats. The tuck shop mentorship program is about so much more then selling chocolate, it’s about developing friendships and helping each other. Those 1-1 visits mean so much to so many. Thanks to all our Volunteers for always stepping up. I know we do not have near enough but the ones we have are golden. At St. Jude’s we are all about family. Just a reminder family and friends are always welcome. March special events, dates to remember.

Friday March 15th 2:30 - St Patrick’s Day pub social
 Saturday March 16th, 2:30 - Irish Dancers will be returning
 Saturday March 23rd  - 2:00 UBC Chamber of Music
  Hope you can join us, Happy Spring!
Mara Morgan, Recreation Team Lead
Lucia Mathew, Rehabilitation Assistant
