President’s Message – April 2019
Bernard Jordaan
There is an old adage that say’s “after rain comes sunshine” so it
makes sense to say that after cold comes warmth. Many of us went
south to find that warmth, Lois and I even met Doug Edgar from B.C.
National Pensioners Federation’s resolution committee chair, seeking
warmth on a cruise ship we were on.
We hope many of our members and clubs are ready to launch their
fund raising efforts in May, the month dedicated as our “fund raising
month”. Ageing is one of the reasons our membership is dropping.
Thus the annual membership fee of $3.00 does not cover all of our
administration costs, hence the need for our fund raising efforts.
The small amount of funding we receive from the Province helps to
keep convention costs down. No funding what so ever is received
from the Federal Government. They have turned us down numerous
times when we have applied for “charitable status” which prevents us
from obtaining funding from banks and large corporations that
seniors support in their hundreds of thousands.
We do receive, at this time, some annual funding from Sanofi Pasteur
and Merck. Two pharmaceuticals that give something back to
organizations like ours. OUR MOST SINCERE THANKS TO THEM.
The U.S.C.O. cannot survive without additional income. Again I have
to stress that the entire executive board donates all their time and
effort without seeking any rewards, so that our two staff members
and the building are taken good care of. On your behalf I say thank
you to all of them.
For those snow bird members returning, welcome back home. Have a
great SPRING.
Fundraising is the catalyst of change. Author unknown
It is more rewarding to watch money change the world
than it is to watch it accumulate. Gloria Steinem
Happy Easter​
