Western Picnic

A warm sunny day, a gentle ocean breeze and a very low tide was enjoyed by Oceanside Stroke Recovery members at the beachfront picnic in Qualicum Beach. The pot luck lunch was outstanding and could have fed many more! Lots of cowboy hats and clothing to accent the western theme! Wonderful to have grand children with us!

Happy Anniversary!

Oceanside Stroke Recovery Society is celebrating our second anniversary on the net! In 2016, June Wood of Smart Move generously offered to pay the costs of developing and maintaining our website. Since then, we have been able to keep our members up to date on our activities and advertise to those needing help with post-stroke issues. Thanks also to Julie Russell of Billboard Web Services for her continuing support on our website.

When June is not helping in the community, you can find her doing a little yard work at her new home, also the site of her new store located at 1092 Koskimo Rd, Qualicum Beach. Store is open Saturdays from 10 to 3 pm if you need a little retail therapy.

Everyone loves a parade

Happy Canada Day 2018! This year Oceanside Stroke Recovery joined the Qualicum Beach Canada Day parade sponsored by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 76. Our co-ordinator did a fabulous job organizing our members who participated! Thank you, Kathleen! You are an amazing spirit! Perhaps that is why OSRS won the “Best Spirit” prize. Thanks to Don Shadbolt for driving his little red Miata and loaning his electric tricycle that Bonnie Stone had fun riding in the parade. Our scooter team this year was Jim Werdal and Rick Turner. Our very fit walkers were Kathleen Falvia, Anne Van Oostrum, Kathy Werdal and Bernice Prior. Our oldest member, Anne Quaade had the pleasure of riding with Don in the open convertible. Thank you, everyone!

These organizations are the results of the cumulative efforts of many dedicated and hardworking volunteers over many, many years. Oceanside Stroke Recovery was honoured to receive an invitation to celebrate these milestones. Many times the Bradley Centre has opened their doors to help OSRS.
