To All Community Hall Users ~ 

The floors have been cleaned and polished, and look wonderful!  Thanks to Ralf Kempe, for organizing and getting this job done!

To keep everything looking great, we ask that everyone removes their outdoor footwear upon entering the hall. Perhaps bring a pair of inside shoes to slip on, at least while the ground is wet through the winter and early spring. 

Thanks,

Gloria Taylor

Maintenance, TICA

Thank You for your Donations ~

Thank you to everyone who donated money, food and other goods to the Cowichan Neighbourhood House Association for their Christmas programs.

A generous total of $505 plus many thoughtful items were collected by the school and delivered yesterday to Neighbourhood House to assist our neighbours in need this season.

If anyone who donated money wants a charitable tax receipt, please contact me to arrange as they are only issued by Neighbourhood House upon request at this time of year because of their workload.

Thanks,
Kelly Bannister

Letters of Support Sought for Richard Jerman of Penelakut

Request for letters of support from friends of Richard Jerman of Penelakut Island.

https://www.greenparty.ca/media-release/2013-12-12/greens-express-deep-concern-first-nations-man-threatened-deportation

http://www.timescolonist.com/news/local/u-s-born-man-faces-deportation-from-penelakut-island-after-37-years-1.757890

Many of you may have heard that Richard was detained by Canadian Immigration.
He has lived on Penelakut for 37 years, is married to Maria George, has four children and 14 grandchildren. Thanks to the efforts of his Family and many Friends he is home again. The Penelakut Band has even offered to adopt him so that he can stay and Elizabeth May has also extended her support.
But he must go through a long process to retain his residence in Canada.  Any letters of support will help him stay here and at home with his Family.  So if you know Richard and would like to help here is a general outline of what is needed in the letters:

Letters to:  The Minister of Citizenship & Immigration
Regarding:  Richard German

Identify yourself, where you are from, how you know Richard, how long you have known him, what is his character, and how does his staying benefit the community.

If you mail your letter to Richard at his address below within the next week or so, he and his lawyer will present them as a group to the Immigration authorities in about ten days.  Richard extends his appreciation and thank you to you all!

Richard's address:
Box 11430
Clam Bay Road North
Chemainus BC V0R 1K6

Thank you very much!

Soup Cessation Seasonal Singing

Hello All,

If you love the carol season and miss the community Christmas concert, several of us are going to hang around after Soup's On and sing some carols together.  

We will have a few carol sheets for those who can't remember all of the words.  This is not a formal gathering...we just feel festive and this is the last Soup's On before Christmas.  

Please join us.  We will commence when the soup slurping ceases...probably close to 12:45 or slightly earlier.  

We wont rush anybody.  

See you Wednesday.

Jeannine
