Annual General Meeting
On May 16, 2016, Lionsview held its 25th anniversary Annual General Meeting. It was a great meeting, with the usual business items including the approval of our Financial Statements and the election of our new Board. We also had an impressive speaker, Michael Geller, who talked about housing. His presentation slide show can be shown here: Lionsview_AGM_Presentation by Michael Geller. Also, the 2015-2016 Annual Report is available here.
Services to Seniors Coalition News
Meals on Wheels
A selection of food provided by North Shore Meals on Wheels was a tasty start to the first Coalition meeting of 2017. Board members Betsy MacDonald and Debbie Maclean brought the meals directly from The Pantry kitchen and Maureen Lougheed, the society’s past president, spoke about Meals on Wheels’ work in the community.
Coalition members: your feedback from the tasting would be welcome, as MOW’s goal is to provide quality food as well as good service. Get in touch with MOW North Shore with your comments: 604-922 3414, email@example.com and www.northshoremealsonwheels.org
Hollyburn Family Services
Hollyburn Family Services’s presentation, Seniors at Housing Risk, 2016 Program Update, was an illuminating and unsettling look at homeless seniors and seniors at risk of homelessness on the North Shore. Director of Services Leya Eguchi cited some alarming statistics reflecting the rise of this sector of our seniors population. Programs noted in the presentation have been developed to respond as the result of recommendations of the Seniors at Housing Risk Participatory Research Project (2013), a collaboration between Hollyburn Family Services and Lionsview Seniors Planning Society.
