The annual meeting of Eaglestone Lodge Personal Care Home has been postponed by about a month.
The Lodge’s January newsletter, compiled by Doug Elsasser, the board secretary, says that the annual meeting, which had been scheduled for Jan. 26, has been postponed to Feb. 23 at the Kamsack Legion Hall.
The meeting will feature the presentation of Eaglestone’s 2021-2022 audited financial statement, the election of directors, and a question-and-answer session.
Reviewing the Christmas season at the Lodge, the newsletter says that the spirit of giving was alive and well over the holiday season.
“Thanks to donors who contributed to the Miracle on Miles Street, all 36 residents had gifts under the tree,” it said. Kamsack’s air cadets sponsored the December birthday party, and gifted chocolate sleighs and cones of nuts, while the Anglican Church women purchased roasting turkeys and all the trimmings for the Christmas dinner.
The newsletter thanks the Legacy Co-op for its donation of gifts to all the residents.
The pancake breakfast and Christmas party held Dec. 17, was a huge success, it said, adding that the event, which had been open to families and friends of the residents, was “golden.” The day began with a pancake breakfast, followed by residents playing Christmas carols on chimes which was directed by Amanda Yaremko. After lunch was served, the afternoon program featured songs by Stephen Ruten, a memorable performance by recording artist Troy MacNaughton, and choral singing directed by Susan Bear.
“Thanks to Eaglestone staff and volunteers who organized the event.”
There is presently one small full-care room available at Eaglestone Lodge, the newsletter said. Persons may contact Tricia Sheptak, Kathy Wishnevetski or Karen Bodnaryk for more information.
Anyone wishing to try a short stay at the Lodge can register for respite care, it said. This option costs $75 a day and includes a private room, meals, and personal care.
“Our short-term rental suites, reserved for residents’ family members and health care workers temporarily staying in Kamsack, cost $85 per night, $420 per week or $1,600 per month,” it said. “Please check with administration for availability.”
The newsletter urges district residents to consider donating their redeemable can and bottle money to Eaglestone when visiting the Kamsack SARCAN outlet. “Just tell the attendant to send your funds to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
