Many thanks to the family of Audrey Johnson

 

Audrey Alexandra Johnson

"General Johnson", as she was affectionately known at Golden Secondary School where she taught math, died on December 20, 2020 at the age of 94 years.

 Audrey's family would like to thank the staff at the Golden Hospital for her care and to Dr. Tan for his unwavering dedication to, and compassion for, her. 

What better way to support the local community and it's hospital than by donating to the Friends of the Golden & District Hospital.

All of the money donated to the Friends, stays in Golden and is used to buy equipment for the hospital and/or Durand Manor over and above the annual budget.

Every year since its inception in 2015, Audrey has donated to the Friends of the Golden Hospital Thanksgiving Fundraiser. Her support for the community and the hospital has been unwavering. 

Audrey's family has made a very generous donation of $10,000 that will be used to buy equipment in 2021.

However, I picked up a cheque after the closing which revised the final tally to $34,325 raised in total; $21,525 on the internet and $12,800 in cheques. This surpasses our goal. All funds in excess of those required to purchase the Neonatal Cardiac Monitor will be used to buy other equipment for the Golden Hospital or Durand Manor. 

To all the donors for 2020 "Thank you all so much for your generous support."

Lake Louise Ski Resort donated $2500

On my way to Calgary last week I stopped in to chat with Charlie and Louise Locke. There are a number of exciting things happening at the Lake Louise Ski Resort including approval for a new chair to replace the Summit poma and the opening of West Bowl in the near future. 

On behalf of the Lake Louise Ski Resort, Charlie and Louise donated $2500. Thank you all so much for your generous support.

What are you Thankful for?

Now the Thanksgiving weekend is here, you should take time to reflect on the things that you are most thankful for. That list almost always starts with family, friends, and loved ones. High on my list, I am thankful to have relatively good health.
 
I am very thankful that I live in a caring community where neighbours helps neighbours and Friends support Friends. A community that cares for it's newborns and it's senior and everyone in between.

I am extremely thankful that Golden is fortunate enough to have the Golden & District Hospital and Durand Manor complete with compassionate and caring doctors and staff. What better way to thank those folk than to join the Friends of the Golden and District hospital and donate a gift to buy equipment that helps them help us.

The size of the gift, $50 or $500, is less important than the message it sends; "Thank you, we care".

This is the last day the online fundraising page, Giving Thanks to the Golden & District Hospital 2020, is accepting donations.

Procrastinate no longer! 

Large or small, all donations are welcome.
