As the summer approaches, we are ready to enjoy some down time to reset and recharge.
What do you like to do during the summer months, but haven't done in awhile?
I think for me, I want to make a conscious effort to go out on the water more. If you know me, you know that I suffered from a terrible accident a couple of years ago, where I slid down our cottage ramp one icy morning, dislocated my foot, broke my leg, and shattered my ankle.
I haven't been as adventurous (physically) or active as I used to be, as I now have some limitations. But I am going to make the effort this year and get a little bit of the ol' me back! Carefully, of course!
I am also holding my first fundraiser on Saturday, July 23 for the Huntsville Hospital Foundation, and for Mooreland's Camp. This is a kids camp for the underprivileged and is on our lake.
It is a lot of work but I have learned patience over these last couple of years, not to stress and have faith that it will all work out in the end.
My good friend, Beth Parkes, and Vice President of rdhu, said the nicest thing to me a couple of weeks ago. She said, Kath, even if you don't reach your fundraising goal, what you are doing has created a ripple effect. There have been friends and family who have mentioned that since we started this fundraiser, it has led others to do something as well. So that is pretty cool to think. We can all give back in some way. Whether it is volunteering for an event, or delivering food to those who need it, there are many ways to give back.
The Huntsville Doppler, a local newspaper, shared the story today. Click here to read it.
One more weekend of hands-on courses at rdhu in Ontario and at Sinclair in British Columbia, then the summer months are here!
We have a few things in the making for the summer: The Dental Hygiene Quarterly Summer Special and our Beanie Special and Contest. See below :)
Thank you for reading and have a great week ahead! Please take a look below for what is coming up!
