Announcements:
Lori McLeod reported as follows on last Friday's Annual Golf Classic, with extras from George P:
With 115 golfers and about 25 dinner guests the day was a great success. Lori Mcleod estimates that our Club and The Elder Care Foundation will share about $18,000; that’s nearly double the 2005 tournament, the 2006 tournament grossed $19,207. Thanks to all the volunteers and the participants for making it such a great day. Our own members won some of the prizes, including Dallas, David M. and your reporter. Our thrifty treasurer, David Sills, presented Lori with a bouquet of red roses from his garden, remarking that it goes against his nature to congratulate someone until the cash is in his hands.

Other Announcements:
1. President Jack issued a copy of Governor Norm’s Challenge; note that this form is to be submitted by May 1st, 2008.
2. Another garage sale is being planned for Sept. 29, 2007 at Mark’s house again. The last garage sale netted $1,800. Really good items may be donated. With Mark’s garage already full from last time, we don’t want more unsold goods.
3. On Sept. 11 Cops for Cancer Tour De Rock will be at our club and we are encouraged to bring students to that meeting.

Sergeant At Arms:
Sergeant At Arms Brian Lamb was quite reasonable today. He didn’t fine David Sills, he just warned him - the collections of all dues must be in by month end. However, he did fine John Edgell, Therese, Cindy, and Lynne. Irene Davie won the draw but no white marble.

happy birthday Birthdays & Anniversaries:
Anniversaries were celebrated by Leslie Rogers-Warnock and Neil Madsen. We sang Happy Birthday to Ted Harrison on his 81st birthday.

Jack’s best one of the day: Two Scotsmen living in Aberdeen both happened across a copper on the sidewalk at the same time, both grabbed for it and that is how copper wire was invented.

Guest Speaker, Veronica Osborn, introduced by Vicki Pitt

Veronica Osborn has 30 years of accumulated service with the B.C. Government and is currently Executive Assistant to the Deputy Minister, Women’s Programs. She has an extensive record of community service and since 2005 has been Chair of the Mount St. Mary Foundation. She was assisted in her presentation by Mandy Parker, Executive Director of the Foundation.
Mount St. Mary Hospital opened its doors more than 65 years ago. The hospital is owned and operated by the Sisters of St. Ann. Hospital residents may have moderate or advanced dementia, multiple medical needs, complex behaviours or physical limitations - all of which require a high level of support. The configuration of the hospital allows staff to deliver care that is considered a model of care; and other complex care facilities see Mount St. Mary as a standard. At Mount St. Mary Hospital, Veronica reported, we want our 200 residents to live every day to the fullest, enjoying their final years in a warm, home-like environment. We want a Spiritual Care program that provides spiritual and religious support for each resident that wants or need it. We want a Music Therapy program that touches and comforts each resident with the skilful art of music - a proven way to promote and improve physical, emotional or spiritual Health. We want the most up-to-date health care equipment to ensure the residents' stay at the hospital is comfortable, safe and enjoyable. Education of employees and volunteers is critical to the care we provide. Our pet therapy program is a tremendous asset - and the visits by staff dogs who come to spend the day at the hospital help address the needs for companionship. We want to ensure the future of the programs at Mount St. Mary Hospital are sustained in perpetuity, and so we’ve created the Sisters of St. Ann Legacy Fund to honour the outstanding contribution the Sisters of St. Ann have made to health care and education in Victoria for the past 150 years. In 2008, the Sisters of St. Ann will be celebrating 150 years in the Victoria community.

Veronica concluded her presentation with a short video of the activities of the Hospital, courtesy of Shaw Cable. The speaker was thanked by Wynn Taylor.
