Sponsored by Realist Realty Intl Ltd Logo

             THANK YOU TO GORDON HALKETT OF REALIST REALTY INTERNATIONAL LTD


In August, Realist Realty International Ltd's EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS FOUNDATION offered to award a 2001 Chrysler Town & Country minivan to a deserving charity, group or individual who could use it to support people in need in our Nanaimo community.

There were 61 applicants for the van and, thanks to the support and votes of the greater Nanaimo community, our Society was chosen as most worthy. On Monday, October 21st, a gathering was held to officially present the van to our Society.
On hand were such notables as:
 

        Gord Halkett (Realist Realty)
        Don Goldsbury (Owner, Midas Nanaimo)
        His Worship Mayor John Ruttan
        Kim Smythe (CEO Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce)

             Also on hand to represent our Society were:
                    Cathy Robson (Executive Director)
                    Vonnie Wilton (Client)
                    Inge & Roland Von Stackleberg (Volunteers)
                    Jeff Boegel (Chair)
                    Leo Cosma (Board Member)
                    Bernice Johnson (Board Member)
                    Piera Jung (Board Member)

Along with the van, Don Goldsbury of Midas Nanaimo, 1850 Island Highway N has offered two years' free maintenance! Now we have a means to bring seniors and people with disabilities to our events and monthly shopping outings as well as other happenings around town!
