February 2017 Inside Out

I wish to thank Tim Kist for his excellent report on our chapter meeting in January. For anyone who didn't manage to make the meeting, I'm sure you will find his report will have addressed all your concerns.

Visitor Training is scheduled for Friday, April 21, 2017. ETs Angie Libbrecht and Jennifer Bourdeaud'hui will be our very able instructors that evening. The trained visitor is the heartbeat of the organization. Visitors come in various sizes, shapes, ages and sex. They may be models, business people, athletes or homemakers, young and old alike but they all have the common bond of having undergone ostomy surgery, or alternate procedures, and are now living productive and happy lives. I took the above quote from Ostomy Canada Society's Visitor Training Manual. Check out page 11 for more reading on this subject. In most cases your time commitment would entail, a 10-15 minute visit approximately 4-5 times a year. We need you! Please contact me at 204-489-2731 for more information and/or to submit your name.

Elections are coming up in April. I wish to point out that we have been without a secretary for the past year. Yours truly has been filling in but it is time for someone else to come on board. The one main requirement is access to a computer and email. Lots of help and training would be provided for anyone considering this position.

I promise!
