The Barb Kerr 50+ expo was an astounding success! Just under $1000 was made for Hospice West Parry Sound. There was an abundance of community services and an overwhelming amount of community members stopping by! Thank you Barb Kerr! Third-party fundraising like this is what allows us to continue to provide services, programming, and a Visiting Hospice to West Parry Sound.
The Fall Fashion Show was a huge success raising over $1700 for Hospice West Parry Sound. A special thank you to Russell from Gardens of Parry Sound for his continued support and for the hospitality, and to all the models who come out and show us the latest fashions. Thank you.
PAINT NIGHT WITH B-GROUP
Hospice West Parry Sound hosted a paint night , held on September 6th at Jessica Vergeer Studios for our Bereavement Social Group.
This opportunity allowed our members to come together and utilize expressive art skills to facilitate the grieving process, led by a talented artist.
As we seek to piece our lives together after a loss, the expressive arts can heal us by giving these bits and pieces the attention they deserve and need.
For a moment, we can sink into ourselves and allow our memories, thoughts, and feelings—those we desperately struggle with—an opportunity to speak, to be heard, and to be felt.
Each time that we engage the process using the arts, we give ourselves a break, a breath, and a moment away from the pain that seeks expression beyond talk therapy.
