Everyone is encouraged to become a member of OHC and to work together for improved health care for our communities.
The OHC Association Board and its volunteers were honored with a volunteer award at Chester Municipality`s Volunteer Awards Ceremony and Reception held at the District #1 Community Centre, Blandford on Wednesday April 13th . The OHC Board would like to thank the Chester Village Commission for making that nomination
Royal Canadian Legion Branch # 44 Chester, Nova Scotia—a wonderful partnership!
The OHC Chase the Ace continues to grow with the jackpot recently surpassing the $10,000.00 mark. In addition to the hundreds of community residents purchasing tickets every week the support of many volunteers is essential to the continuing success of the OHC Chase the Ace Draw.
In planning the OHC Chase the Ace Draw Program one key decision was to establish a close working relationship with the Chester Legion. As a leading community organization the Chester Legion serves as the host location for both the Monday winning ticket draw and the Wednesday card selection ceremony. The Chester Legion also provides the dedicated volunteers to count the ticket monies every week and complete the set-up for the weekly winner to select their card. The behind the scenes work to make the OHC Chase the Ace a success is never noticed but always sincerely appreciated. Having the Chester Legion as a valuable partner with the OHC Chase the Ace Program is a perfect relationship!
More than a decade ago, Kim Geldart was among a small group of citizens who began to formulate a vision for Our Health Centre. As a pharmacist, she recognized the need for improved health services and wellness education for all the citizens of our communities. Since that time Kim and the staff at the Pharmasaves in Chester, Hubbards and Chester Basin have been supporting the creation of Our Health Centre.
Together the 3 Pharmasaves in our region are one of the three leading private corporate donors to the OHC Capital Campaign.
The OHC Board is proud of Kim Geldart’s involvement in the OHC project, and sends their sincere thanks to her for her unwavering support and the leadership she shows to her staff that encourages them to be OHC cheerleaders.
