Hot Weather in Store for Southwestern BC

Posted July 13, 2018

While hot and sunny conditions are welcomed news for most, Environment and Climate Change Canada and Medical Health Officers are reminding residents to take precautions to protect themselves from the heat. Keep cool by:

  • Spending time in an air-conditioned facility (such as a shopping centre, library, community centre or restaurant) for at least several hours every day.
  • Dress for the weather by wearing loose, light-weight clothing. Protect yourself from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.
  • Avoid sunburn, stay in the shade or use sunscreen with SPF 30 or more
  • NEVER leave children or pets alone in a parked car.
  • Check in on others - People living alone are at high risk of severe heat related illness.

Volunteer Appreciation

During the month of April, Canada celebrates  National Volunteer  Week.  This year, April 15-21, 2018 was the designated week to thank volunteers for all that they do for their communities.  This year's theme is: "Celebrate the Value of Volunteering - building confidence, competence, connections and community."

On April 18, 2018, we celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Citizen Support Services!  We recognized and thanked our volunteers for their years of service to the community with our annual luncheon at the Riverway Clubhouse in Burnaby. We also acknowledged the retirement of our department head, mentor and friend for 29 years, Anne Waller with a 'gentle roast' in a comedic improvisational performance of Rock Paper Scissors.
