Aloha! Excellent turn out for our Hawaiian luau on Leap Year Day! Everyone looked festive in their Hawaiian outfits and enjoyed the occasion. The pot luck was outstanding! Several chicken recipes, meat balls, salads, sandwiches and plenty of desserts. Thanks to all who contributed to the luncheon. Thanks also to those who helped with the clean up. Special thanks to Kathleen for setting the tables the evening before and finishing the dish washing the next morning.
January 2020 lunch out was at the newly opened Ricky’s Restaurant in Parksville. Never before have 50 of our members enjoyed lunch out together. The back room at Ricky’s was reserved for us and it was jammed! Stroke survivors and caregivers unite! You made a very bold statement to our community, enjoying the moment at Ricky’s while continuing to travel the road to stroke recovery.

It was very special to have the Jolly Old Elf and his helper visit us at our annual Christmas party. As you know, this is Santa’s busiest time of year. Some of you took the time to have your photo taken with Santa which are posted below. I hope you will share them with your family, especially grandchildren!
Once again Kathleen and her elves hosted a wonderful Christmas party! Traditionally, this event is one of Oceanside Stroke Recovery’s fundraisers. Members and friends come together to enjoy a delicious turkey dinner with all the trimmings. This year, 11 members provided QF turkey vouchers. The meal was prepared by Quality Foods and delivered to the Bradley Centre. The team of Bradley Centre elves were on hand to serve this popular meal.
For the first time ever, Santa Claus and his elf “B” made an appearance and spent time chatting with our members. Santa did make some notes in his big black book, but I am sure they were positive notations.
Over 80 baskets and two food hampers were given away by raffle draws after the dinner. The half-n-half draw was won by lucky Robb Glazier.
Thank you to all who made our Christmas party a fantastic success.The Santa photo-op pictures will be posted soon. Merry Christmas!
