Eureka Support Society July luncheon on Sunday

Luncheon will feature sandwiches and desserts, served with tea and coffee, followed by music from cellist Jordie Robinson.

Join Eureka Support Society volunteers July 28 for the next in its series of Sunday luncheons.

The first luncheon in May was an incredible success! There was great food, super service, and an excellent musical presentation. Unfortunately, the June luncheon had to be cancelled because of a power outage.

The July luncheon will feature a delicious array of sandwiches and desserts, served with tea and coffee. The lunch will be followed by a musical presentation by professional cellist Jordie Robinson.

“We were thrilled with the results of our first luncheon and plan to build on its successes” says Jill Marston, event organizer. “Attendees had great things to say about all aspects of the luncheon:  the variety of food to choose from, the table setting, the pleasant volunteers, and of course the excellent entertainment. All of the volunteers did an amazing job, and we’re ready to do it again.”

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 $15 and are available at Eureka Support Society, 280 Fourth St. in Courtenay. Please get your tickets in advance of the event, or phone Eureka at 250-334-4035 to reserve your tickets. There are a limited number of tickets available. Tickets are also available for the final summer luncheon to be held Aug. 25.
