OHC COMMUNITY LANDSCAPING PROJECT
Monday October 24th 2016
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” …Margaret Mead
Thanks to all the volunteers who showed up on Monday October 24th to plant 80+ shrubs, move a mountain of mulch, haul wheelbarrow load after wheelbarrow load , pick up garbage, and sweep all the dirt away . And not to forget last week’s volunteers who laid all the sod, transported the shrubs, and offered their landscaping expertise to the overall plan …. And before them, all the landscaping companies who volunteered to truck topsoil and mulch, plant the big trees & hedges, and level off the topsoil in the planting beds.
This landscaping project was all about community pride and because of you OHC looks amazing! --just in time for this Saturdays Open House from 10 am-3pm Thank you for changing the world!
Don Munroe / Chair of the OHC Association Board Oct 24th/16 "I am in total awe of the finished product. But more importantly the effort of the volunteers is outstanding. To have accomplished this in two days is mind blowing. On behalf of the board and the community at large I simply say we are all truly grateful for your donations of skill and time. I hope there are not too many aching bodies tonight!! Through your efforts we are the envy of the entire province. We have a magnificent facility. Thank you!"

INFORMATION FOR HEALTH
Volunteers are the backbone of any successful organization and OHC is no different. We are pleased that a number of individuals have already expressed interest in volunteering with OHC by attending an orientation session on October 21. We thank those who were able to join us for this session and the municipal recreation staff for their support with this important work.
The two volunteer roles we have available right now are Navigators with the Information for Health Program and Greeters who will help create a welcoming and pleasant environment for patients, clients, and all who come to Our Health Centre.
Your support is greatly appreciated!
DONOR RECOGNITION and the FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN
In due time the donor wall in the reception area of OHC will be completed; this special wall will recognize all donations of $250 and over.
The Capital Campaign to raise $4.5 million to build, furnish and equip Our Health Centre continues. To date over $4.1 M of that has already been donated or pledged.
The Campaign Team is continuing to have conversations with corporations, foundations and individuals. If you have not yet made your donation, or feel you are in a position to make another donation to the OHC Campaign, this would be a wonderful time to do so!
From October 2015 to April 2016, the NSHA hosted 1,000 people in 42 meetings to help figure out how Nova Scotians can be healthier. During this time, there were 9,000 visits to the NSHA Talk about Health website, and hundreds of people downloaded information, filled out surveys and posted comments.
