It was an entertaining afternoon yesterday at the Saanich Christmas Concert. Thank you to We Care Home Health for sponsoring the event. The STAGES Performance Art youth dancers were fabulous, followed by the always uplifting Greater Victoria Police Chorus.
The Victoria Christmas Concert is on December 13th and there is still time to sign up - because you can't have enough of kids and music at this time of year!

We were pleased to welcome The Saanich Braves to the centre today. They picked our members to be the recipients of their Good Deed and presented everyone with Emergency Kits. Captain Maegan Thompson from Saanich Emergency Preparedness presented and gave us all some good tips. The team shared the items they gathered, to keep us going for a few days if there was an earthquake or other disaster. They even had dog and cat food!
The Good Deed Cup is a national initiative sponsored by Chevrolet Canada in support of youth hockey. Stay tuned for their video of the event!
Thank you Saanich Braves!

Silver Threads Service

On November 21st we hosted the 50th Anniversary dinner to celebrate our partnership with Saanich. The dinner was attended by Mayor Fred Haynes, Councillors Susan Brice, Judy Brownoff, Zac de Vries and past Councillor Vicki Sanders.
A highlight was having Les Passmore’s daughter, Marjorie Russell and grand daughter Kimberly join us. The building is named after Les Passmore who was a Saanich Councillor for 33 years and very supportive of Silver Threads and seniors. It was great to recognize her family’s legacy.
Our entertainment was our “house bands” the Saanich Songmen and Hampton Singers, the choirs have been practicing at the Saanich Centre since we opened 50 years ago.
Thank you to everyone for a great evening!
