At their February 19 board meeting, the North Thompson Valley Hospice House Society (NTVHHS) discussed and set the following goals for 2013.
• That committees be established for finance, building, research, and membership.
• That a feasibility study be completed by the end of the year.
• That property be identified for the location of the Hospice House.
Besides setting their goals, other items were discussed. One such item was regarding the Bonnie CruzelleMyram Tree. This is the ‘Angel Tree’ that has been set-up at the Barriere Library every December for the last several years.
By donation, anyone can place an angel on the tree; the funds raised have then been donated to one of two local charities: the NTVHHS and the Barriere and District Hospice Society.
The monies raised during 2012 are being donated to the NTVHHS in Bonnie’s honour.
Members will be staffing a Society booth at the 1st Annual Celebration of Rural Living Expo and Trade Show on April 27-28, at the Agriplex in Barriere.
The next regular meeting of the Society will be on March 19, 2 p.m. at the Little Fort Community Hall.
The Annual General Meeting will be held on April 30, 7 p.m. at the Little Fort Community Hall. New members are always welcome to join.
