From the Staff at Cameron Centre

Thank you Cameron Seniors’ Volunteers!  We missed celebrating with a Volunteer Lunch this year, but look forward to seeing you again soon. Thank you for all of your work in 2019, and the beginning of 2020, to make so many opportunities for Cameron Seniors. Your leadership helps people to live healthy, happy lives, enjoying fun, learning, and belonging with friends. Thanks especially to those volunteers who are continuing to volunteer from home during this time of social isolation. Your friendly phone calls, work on the website, and work to keep the Seniors Society running are more valuable than we can say. We are thinking of you, and appreciating you very much, this Volunteer Week 2020.

Neetu, Stephen, Monica, Stacy and Sue

Myra Honoured at the One Tree 2019 Project

OneTree 2019 logo

Myra Gusway is Cameron Seniors’ Activity Leader for the WHAT-A-Theatre Group. Three or four times each year, Myra and her group produce entertaining plays for our members to enjoy.

Recently, Myra was honoured to be one of the artists in the One Tree 2019 Project at the Robert Bateman Gallery in Victoria BC. Over 70 artists created pieces, inspired by and made out of the wood from an ancient maple tree that grew in the Chemainus Valley. There were sculptures, furniture, musical instruments, housewares, and from Myra, a play! It’s entitled “Magnificent Maple.” Myra’s creation is a reader’s theatre play that was performed at the Gala Event on November 15 at the Robert Bateman Gallery. For this hands-on exhibit, Myra’s script is available in multiple copies, so that groups touring the exhibit can participate in performances. Through their interactions with the story and the objects on display, they will come to know the history and beauty of this one tree. Dozens of artists and hundreds of gallery-goers, all connected by one tree!

The exhibit continues through February 29, 2020.
