Eureka Support Society begins luncheon series

The Eureka Support Society supports people in the Comox Valley with a serious mental illness.

The Eureka Support Society has begun a summer Sunday Luncheon series.

The first luncheon was held May 26 and featured cellist Jordie Robinson.

Don’t miss out on the next Sunday luncheon on June 23. After sandwiches and treats served with tea and coffee, Robinson will entertain with selections from Bach, Beethoven, and other wonderful music masters.

Invite family and friends to come join us for this great event. They will enjoy a lovely luncheon, and support Eureka at the same time.

The Eureka Support Society is the only non-government agency providing support to people in the Comox Valley who have a serious mental illness.

Eureka Support Society runs a resource centre where members have the opportunity to have daily nourishing meals, socialize, have fun, feel valued, and develop skills. There are also many opportunities for job placements.

Eureka members participate in the planning, development, and implementation of programs. In addition to the resource centre, Eureka also runs the Black Top Players, a puppet troupe made up of Eureka members, who go to elementary schools and educate children to combat the stigma of mental illness.

Tickets are available at Eureka Support Society at 280 Fourth St. in  Courtenay. Get your tickets in advance of the event, or phone Eureka at 250-334-4035 to reserve your tickets.

There are a very limited number of tickets available. Tickets are available for each of the Summer Sunday luncheons: June 23, July 28 and Aug. 25.
