ONTARIO PAPER FOUNDATION SUPPORTS BEAVERDAMS CHURCH

Friends of Beaverdams Church representatives John Henderson & David Cowan welcomed Ontario Paper Thorold Foundation trustees Margaret Stewart & Ron Hartle. Photo by Paul Carfagnini. A Foundation funding a foundation was good news today for the Friends of Beaverdams Church. A donation by a charitable Foundation will help cover expenses for the structural foundation of the historic Beaverdams Church in Thorold. The Ontario Paper Thorold Foundation presented a $25,000 cheque to the Friends of Beaverdams Church on February 10. The donation will go toward masonry repairs on the building’s foundation. External renovations to the building constructed in 1832 are expected to cost approximately $60,000. The external renovation list includes installation of new windows, clapboard repairs or replacement, among other work required over the next 4 to 5 years. After the exterior of the building is restored, the Friends’ focus will turn to the interior of the Church located on Marlatts Road. The historic church was designated under the Ontario Heritage Act in 1994.

CLUB CAPRI WEDDING SHOW

Club Capri’s first wedding showcase on February 28 in Thorold was like a one stop shop for couples planning their dream day. Club Capri Event Coordinator Lorette Garofalo produced the show to match up local wedding specialists with couples planning their celebration of marriage. The event also offered the visitors a tour of the beautifully decorated banquet centre, and a food tasting to sample the delicious culinary creations by acclaimed Chef Pat. We found some fun and photogenic couples with exhibitors including this picture of Zachary and Samantha connected with Wedding Officiant Cherie Inksetter. See more photos on page 2.

PHARMACISTS: D OING MORE. FOR YOU. The slogan this year for Pharmacist Awareness Month in Canada is “Pharmacists, doing more, for you.” When it comes to pharmacists in Thorold, the slogan has actually been a truism exemplified by Henderson’s Pharmacy, serving our community since 1939. March is Pharmacist Awareness Month (PAM) in Canada, a month long period to celebrate and educate Canadians about the contribution that pharmacists make in the delivery of health care. This year the Canadian Pharmacists Association (CPhA) is celebrating the changing role of pharmacists with the theme: Pharmacists: Doing more. For you.

Quick Facts: •

Pharmacists are the most accessible health care professionals in Canada, dispensing and providing advice on 600 million prescriptions a year.

There are nearly 39,000 pharmacists in Canada working in over 9,800 community pharmacies and 285 in-patient hospital settings.

Pharmacists consistently rank as one of the most trusted professions by Canadians.

Pharmacist Awareness Month provides a key opportunity to inform and educate patients and all Canadians about the significant strides that pharmacists have made in their ability to deliver patient-centred care. It’s also an opportunity to highlight the essential role that pharmacists play in our health care system.

While pharmacists’ scope of practice varies by province, many pharmacists now provide convenient access to vaccinations, offer smoking cessation programs and support, prescribe for minor ailments and conditions, order and interpret lab tests and offer chronic disease management services.

Look for new reports and studies throughout March highlighting the vital role of pharmacists in our health care system and in the lives of Canadians.

“Pharmacists across Canada have had a widely expanded scope of practice in the past ten years,” said Carlo Berardi, Chair, Canadian Pharmacists Association. “From renewing prescriptions, delivering vaccinations, providing medication management services and prescribing for minor ailments and conditions, Canada’s pharmacists are doing more for their patients.”
