Ruby Slipper Cancer Support Group
Facilitator: Kathy Bolton
Guest: Mary Pinniger
The meeting started at 1pm with Christmas Sweets and Great coffee from the Sandie of the Daily Roast and Ruby Slipper Fund. One of our members brought a beautiful table centre for our table. In the centre was a red candle, which she light, to remember our friends and members that have passed on in this past year.
We started around the table about where we are in our journey, our plans with family, etc. We spent a little time about what is really important in the family get-to-gethers for us. Some of our members are already away visiting family and enjoying the holiday.
Our guest Mary Pinniger explained to the support group that the Ruby Slipper is taking some time to regroup for the New Year and the support groups will take a short break as a result. So there will be no support group in January until we hear from the Ruby Slipper Fund (Ashley will email).
Mary Pinniger brought a jar with paper in it, she expained that members could write 3 things that they liked about the group, and that she will bring the jar to the Ruby Slipper Board. The group asked Kathy if she would be facilitating a group should one start up again, She answered that if she felt that she could do a good job, she would certainly apply for such a position.
The meeting continued with goodies and Christmas good wishes. Meeting finished at 3:20
