Our recent speaker was Jennifer Dies, Annual Giving Coordinator for the Canadian Cancer Society in Salmon Arm. The information she to shared with us focused on the upcoming Relay For Life here on June 10, and also about the support services that are utilized by the people in our community. You can show up to support participants and survivors June 10 at 11:00 am at the Fall Fair Grounds.  Did you know that one of the participants is Rick Hirtle, a former member of our Club?
Jennifer also reminded us that our Club was the prime mover in raising $1.2 million for the Kelowna Cancer Lodge, where patients and their families can reside in comfort and supportive surroundings while receiving treatment.  Over the year September 2015 to September 2016, people have used 10,850 nights at the Cancer Lodge, 1,290 of which were used by people from the Shuswap area.
