Art therapy programs starting

Starting tomorrow, Wed Oct 4, we will have art therapy twice a week; on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Melody is doing a practicum here for her future Masters in Art Therapy. To begin with, she will be working with the group, and will then gravitate towards working one-on-one with the clients.

More good news: our mask painting project materials have finally arrived. Have a look here at the project that grabbed our interest: Unmasking Brain Injury

Food bank greenhouse being built

We have donated some of our garden space to a greenhouse for the Powell River Food Bank. (The food bank is separate from PR Brain Injury Society – they do have the same board members though).

The Community Garden Grant from Food Banks Canada has financed the purchase, and assembly is by the Powell River Rotary Club – thanks guys; you’ve done a great job so far. Too bad the weather wasn’t cooperating  – putting up those panels in strong winds is quite the challenge.
