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!

The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 49 Arrowsmith in Parksville has recently donated $5,000.00 towards the purchase of two handicap bikes to be used in the Oceanside community. The bikes were on display at the Legion this afternoon and people were invited to test ride a tandem side by side three-wheeler with physiotherapist Mike Domes. In this style of bike each rider will have a set of pedals to turn and thus get a healthy dose of active movement medicine. Bikes have an electric assist to support the widest varieties of routes and riders. At the same time with one steering column and an e-assist, two people with varying abilities will be able to team up and get onto the Rail Trail, the Beach side Boardwalk, or any number of trails from Bowser to Nanoose, that call us to get outside and enjoy the fresh air.
