Elderly Abuse Training

A Canadian couple was strolling through Hyde Park in London and sat down on a bench next to an elderly Briton. The Brit noticed their lapel pins sporting the Canadian flag and, to make conversation, said, 'Judging by your pins, you must be Canadians.' 'Indeed we are,' replied the Canadian gentleman. 'I hope you won't mind my asking,' said the Brit, 'but what do the two red bars on your flag represent?' 'Well,' replied the Canadian gentleman, 'one of the bars stands for the courage and hardiness of our people in settling the cold expanses and broad prairies of our country. The other is for the honesty and integrity for which Canadians are known.' The Brit mulled this over and nodded. Having poor eyesight at his advanced age, and not being familiar with maple leaves, he then asked, 'And what's that six-pointed item in the middle of your flag?' 'Oh, that's to remind us of the six words of our national motto,' the Canadian lady piped up. The Brit then asked, 'And what are those six words?' The Canadian smiled and replied, 'They are 'Don't blame us - we're not Americans.'

On July 2nd 2pm till 4pm


There will be a free Elderly Abuse Training held at The Royal Canadian Legion for the General Public and Veteran's

The Vulcan Regional Food Bank Society is requesting funding which would assist us in purchasing and renovating our own building. We are unable to provide an exact amount of needed funding at this time since we do not know which building we will actually get, if it will need renovation, nor if we will have to build a new building instead of purchasing an existing one. However, we would like to raise $160,000 for the building fund this year. Our costs of raising these funds will be about $3500. The Vulcan Regional Food Bank Society is currently located at 115-2nd Ave. N. in Vulcan, which is also where we are incorporated in Alberta, or we may be reached by mail at Box 594, Vulcan, AB T0L 2B0. For further information, please call the Executive Director, Carrol 403 485 2192. If you are donating to our Building Fund, please make cheques out to Vulcan Regional Food Bank Society Building Fund. Thank you!
