Cowichan Coffee Time: Lots of generosity in Cowichan

• South Cowichan Healthcare Auxiliary presented a cheque in the amount of $3,832 to Gretchen Hartley, executive director of Cowichan Valley Hospice Society in Duncan, Nov. 19.

SCHA have gathered theses monies by holding a beer and burger night at the Cow Bay Pub Oct. 6, and four hot dog sales throughout the summer at Country Grocer in Cobble Hill. They would like to thank these businesses for their support.

“SCHA is a very small Auxiliary, only 30 members. We work very hard to raise funds. We do not have a Thrift Shop, nor a gift shop. We hold fundraiser events throughout the year. All our efforts benefit Hospice, CDH, and Cairnsmore. If you’d like to know more, please see our Facebook page (please like us and share South Cowichan Healthcare Auxiliary) or website SouthCowichanHealthcareAuxiliary.ca

We meet every second Tuesday of the month at Mill Bay League Community Hall, next to Kerry Park Arena in Mill Bay, except July and August. We are always excited to welcome new volunteers: please email: SouthCowichanHealthcareAux@gmail.com for more info.

• Holding her viola, Dr. Valorie Masuda accepts a cheque for $3,005.30 to the Cowichan Hospice House from Conductor Joy Ann Bannerman, surrounded by several members of the Cowichan Consort Orchestra and Choir.

The recent Consort’s Christmas Carol Community Sing-Along was well attended and deemed a huge success. Thanks to everyone who came, sang, and donated, the group said.
