Volunteers, office staff and Board members of Senior Peer Support gathered at the Air Force Beach Pavillion June 28th for a BBQ. The weather was perfect, food plentiful and our chefs Al and Dixon did a great job with the grill. This year we had an amazing selection of salads, desserts and appetizers. Pam made a homemade ginger lemonade which was most appreciated.
We had some animation and amusing moments with the children of the French immersion school who were having their school beach day and who took a short cut through our area to get to the washrooms.

This year we will be celebrating the amazing work of our dedicated volunteers with a potluck picnic at Simms Park, Courtenay, on the 26th June.
All Senior Support volunteers and their family or companions are invited to attend and to bring a dish to share.
The Board will provide cold drinks for all.
On the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month volunteers attend a meeting. The first is held at 491B 4th Street, Courtenay and the second is held at the Comox Rec Centre, Noel Ave. Comox. The meetings start at 12.00 and tea and coffee are served. Some bring a bag lunch to eat during the meeting.
The first meeting is all about volunteers and their clients. It is a time to talk to other volunteers about any problems with your client or to share a story about your client. The clients name is not mentioned so confidentiality is kept.
The second meeting is an educational meeting with an invited speaker. We encourage volunteers to submit topics they would to learn more about.
Anyone interested in learning more about Senior Support is welcome to attend.
