Spring 2018

Spring at last and another successful year for the Bruce Peninsula Health Services Foundation is coming to an end. BPHSF staff and Board members will be sharing our accomplishments and celebrating our successes at our Annual General Meeting scheduled for Monday, June 25th.

Thanks to the generosity of our community, both individuals and businesses, we have once again been able to meet our financial obligations for the 2017/2018 year. Your support of and participation in our fundraising events, donations in memoriam, legacy and major gifts have been instrumental to our success. I thank everyone for your contributions to this effort and I trust that you will be able to continue with your benevolence in the future as we proceed with the BPHSF goal of providing updated equipment and facilities in our hospitals in Lion's Head, Wiarton and the Regional Hospital in Owen Sound.

As we close out our year, we have two members finishing their terms on the Board of Directors. Jessika Husak, has completed her fourth year on the Board and is leaving to focus more on her family business. We thank Jessika for her years of service, her valuable insight and direction in governance matters will be missed. Thank you Jessika for all that you have done for your community!

I am completing my second three year term on the Board of Directors and will be leaving effective June 25th. I have been blessed with great support from BPHSF staff and Board members throughout my time as Director and as Board Chair. It has been an honour for me to serve my community in a tangible way that I believe has made a contibution to keeping "good health care close to home". Thank you for allowing me to have this enjoyable and unforgettable opportunity.

Individuals interested in participating as volunteers with our events or as Board members, please contact the Foundation office and Bev Boswell or April Patry will be pleased to assist in making it happen.

Ralph Sprague, Chair of BPHS Foundation
