2 FOCUS - MAY 2018 Heart & Stroke Campaign Thank You Dear Editor I am so happy to have deposited the last donation for this year’s Heart and Stroke Campaign. We raised over $18,000.00 knocking on doors in this generous community where there are so many ways to sponsor and support worthy causes. I’m sure the online contributions will be strong again this year, raising our total even higher. Thank you to the eight Captains who made sure there was a canvasser on every street in their neighbourhood. Thank you to the sixty-three canvassers who knocked on your doors and to the student who delivered brochures in an area with no canvassers. I know there are many ways to support heart health in Scugog Township. Maybe I’ll see a picture of you in Focus On Scugog, on the Big Bike when it comes to town. Thank you Epsom, Utica, Greenbank, Seagrave, Port Perry, Prince Albert, Blackstock, Caesarea, Nestleton, and Scugog Island for making this year’s Heart and Stroke Campaign a success. Judy Anderson, Zone Leader Heart & Stroke Person-to-Person Campaign 2018 P.S. .... and we at Focus thank our advertisers for supporting this worthwhile cause! CLDN takes a break this year Dear Editor It’s that time of year again, Gala season. All of us at Community Living Durham North would like to thank you for your ongoing support of our Jamie’s Dream Gala. Because of your generosity, many wonderful things are happening for people at CLDN. We have decided to take a break for the 2018 year. Given the amount of fundraising that happens on a regular basis in the community we are mindful of the strain it puts on everyone to contribute. Moving forward, we are hoping to build something different, something more inclusive and available to all members of the community to participate in some meaningful way so…..stay tuned! We promise it will be great! Tracy McGarry, Manager, Community Development Community Living Durham North Please send us your letters, maximum of 250 words.
