Gearing up for Heart and Stroke Month

We know the key to a long and healthy life is diet and exercise

Editor, The Times:

Information is power and with today’s technology we are empowered with vast amounts of information. My advice this year is keep it simple. We know the key to a long and healthy life is diet and exercise. Small changes over the course of a year will show the results. We all know what we should be doing. Just do it – three words, to keep you motivated.

We will be setting up a table at Safety Mart again this year to accept donations. You are welcome to stop by and help yourselves to some brochures that may inspire you to get fit.

As always we are looking for volunteers in your neighbourhood for the person-to-person campaign. If you are interested, please phone Wendy Grimm at 250-674-6806.

It was with great sadness that we had to say goodbye this past year to a dear friend and long time volunteer for Heart and Stroke Foundation. Sharon Cusworth volunteered with this organization for 39 years. She was a member of the Clearwater Hospital Auxiliary and the Lion’s Club as well.

In her memory, she requested no flowers; she only asked that you pay good deeds forward, by helping others. Lend a hand. Help a stranger. Volunteer your time. She guaranteed you will feel great.
