CMHDS members and guests found themselves golfing on the nicest day of the year (so far) at the Delta Golf Club on Thursday June 6, 2013. In addition to having a great time and voting in the next season’s Board of Directors members also raised $1700.00 for Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.
Many thanks to event sponsors ARPAC, Cascade, Pivot Training & Williams Machinery. Also many thanks Larry Robertson at Hi-Cube Storage Products who called in minutes before the announcement of total money collected to add $500.00 to the pot!
Also many thanks to Brad Zimmerman and the East Penn team for grilling up the Smokies on the BBQ.
June 10, 2013 – Last week, on the nicest day of the year, CMHDS members & guests played some golf, raised some money for Canuck Place Children’s Hospice and held our Annual General Meeting. General Manager, John Gilder, led us through the AGM reviewing financial statements, facilitating the dissolution the current board and election of the new board (all Directors-at-Large, President, Vice President, and Treasurer remain the same as last year). The AGM was fast and furious so I thought I should fill in a few of the gaps.
First time attendees to the AGM may mistake our “efficiency” as a lack of respect for the official process. I can assure you nothing is further from the truth. The expedited AGM reports the society’s status to members while acknowledging the attendees are more in the mood to party (as you will see by the pictures soon to be posted to the website).
On Thursday March 7th, 2013 CMHDS members gathered for a breakfast meeting to discuss safety culture and CMHDS President, Dan Beer took the opportunity to follow through on a motion passed the previous week by the CMHDS Board of Directors and sign the BC Safety Charter on behalf of the CMHDS.
This Charter represents commitment from industry and organizational leaders in British Columbia to create a culture and adopt practices that value health and safety. It is founded on the principle that the effective management of health and safety is essential to long term success, profitability and sustainability. By supporting this charter senior executives commit themselves to working towards the goal of being corporately sustainable and demonstrating leadership in their communities.

This is a “can’t miss” event where we will be celebrating the holiday season and 31 years of the CMHDS in BC. We have planned a very special event including:
On Tuesday October 2nd, 2012 CMHDS members visited Canuck Place Children’s Hospice in Vancouver to present the $5000.00 raised at the 30th Annual CMHDS Charity Golf Classic.
CMHDS Members Jamie Wagner, RT Agencies and Larry Robertson, Hi-Cube Storage met with Debbie Downs, Corporate Sponsorship & Events Manager to present the money raised.
Out of respect for the families dealing with end of life situations members were not able to meet any of the children currently under care at the facility, however Debbie did tour Jamie and Larry around the facility and grounds detailing the history of the hospice and the work of volunteers (350 in all!) and staff.
CMHDS members and guests not only had a great time golfing in the sun at the 30th Annual CMHDS Charity Golf Classic, Dinner & AGM, they also raised $5000.00 for Canuck’s Place Children’s Hospice. Many thanks to events sponsors including Jamie Wagner from RT Agencies with a $1000.00 donation and Larry Robertson from Hi-Cube Storage who sponsored six holes with a $900.00 donation.
Tee Sponsors included Adecco, AppleOne, East Penn Battery, Harding Forklift, i to i Logistics, Pivot Training, The Placement Group, Rock Tenn, Target Personnel, VersaCold & Williams Machinery. Also many thanks to Tami Haslam from Spicer’s Canada for her donation and coordinating all of the sponsorships.

At that time members will be electing the Board of Directors for the society’s next season which runs from Sept 2012 to June 2013. If you feel you would make a good Director or know of someone who would we would like to hear from you!

About NAOSH Week
The success of NAOSH Week is rooted in a community-based approach. Across the country, NAOSH Week events and activities are coordinated by local, provincial and/or regional committees, comprised primarily of volunteers, who share a focus and vision of safer workplaces and communities. Partnerships with government, business, suppliers, CSSE Chapters, community health organizations and other safety groups provide the support, resources and network necessary to manage the NAOSH Week plans.
Working Gear Clothing Society’s concept is simple. It provides trade appropriate clothing at no cost to low income men who are looking for work. These are men who are job ready, but lack something as simple as a pair of work boots or even a suit and dress shoes for an interview.
Working Gear has a spirited campaign called “No Small Feet” with the goal of collecting new or used steel toe work boots or shoes that are CSA approved and in good condition.
Working Gear is accepting donations of steel-toed work boots and suits and can also accept financial donations that will be used to purchase boots and shoes for the men that we are helping.
