Once again we are thankful that we live on Vancouver Island and that our medical and political leadership is based on science, logic and care for the citizens of BC. And we, the Board and member-owners of the Vic Health Co-op and the Creating Community Wellness Society, are grateful for the commitment of our Member-Owners and community.  

We want to thank two groups in particular: firstly, the VHC members who have already paid their annual fee ($25 or whatever amount works for you); secondly, all the inspirational members and friends who have presented at our twice monthly No-Touch Wellbeing sessions over Zoom. These presentations are a maximum of three minutes and each is about something that brings a sense of happiness to the presenter and, inevitably, to all participating in the session. Exercise, art, music, the beauty of nature and many other topics have delighted us.  After the presentations we enjoy a discussion – always unpredictable, always interesting.  

Now we are preparing to move ahead as we become both more careful and more confident about masks, social distancing, hand hygiene, monitoring our own health.  We would love to hear your opinion about these ideas:

Would you be interested in these programs?  Would you present at either our In Person No-Touch sessions or our on-going No-Touch Zoom sessions?  Would you attend a session on how to avoid the spread of infection?  Let us know.

And a related request:  As we move into the next phase of COVID-19 and develop new programs and relationships, we need to increase our team of volunteer leaders.  Could you offer enthusiasm, expertise, creativity, and leadership?  Please email vichealthcoop@gmail.com with your ideas and questions, or call 250-415-9272.

If you haven’t sent your annual fee, you can do this either by cheque c/o Unit 1, 380 Cook St., V8V 3X7 or by Interac e-transfer to VicHealthCoopTreasurer@gmail.com If your contribution is more than the fee we can transfer the amount over $25 to the Creating Community Wellness Society and give you a Charitable Donation Receipt.  Just ask us about this option.
