Volunteers Needed

 

If you are looking for opportunities for safe social interaction, consider volunteering at one of our local attractions.

The Qualicum beach Museum’s Garden Group has been hard at work over the past year making many wonderful improvements to the museum grounds and garden. They are however a small group and as things go back to normal, they will seriously need new members and more helpers!

If you are interested in learning about West Coast gardening and like spending time outside (which during a pandemic is the best place to be) give the museum a call at 250-752-5533.

 

The Old School House (TOSH), Milner Gardens and the Qualicum Beach Tourist Bureau will also need volunteers as does The Qualicum Beach Seniors’ Activities Centre.

 

So, keep an eye on the website for opportunities as we gradually reopen.

It is an unfortunate reality that as seniors focus on their health amid the pandemic, con artists and scammers are looking to exploit their personal information and profit from these challenging times. 

 

According to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, more than 18,000 Canadians reported fraud in the first four months of 2020 – nearly half of the total number of cases for 2019. Canadians have lost $22.6 million to fraud.

 
Many of these scams target seniors directly. As Laura Tamblyn-Watts, the CEO of National Seniors’ Advocacy Organization CanAge said recently, the virus, combined with scamming attempts, represent “the perfect storm of targeting our vulnerable people.”
