Our guest speaker this past week was Alastair Field of the Enforcement Unit of the  OSC who talked to us about “protecting our money”.  Alastair spoke about his speciality of investment fraud, which many Canadians are victims of, and many are reluctant to even report the crime.  The loss may also lead to other physical or mental problems.

He talked about specific kinds of frauds

Ajax Pickering Hospital Foundation and the Rotary Club of Ajax.

Our speakers were from the Ajax Pickering Hospital Foundation. In this their 65th year, they noted the substantial contributions to the hospital by our club over the years, which total well over $550,000. We were there from the very formation of the APHF.

The Foundation is very happy with the way the integration in the Lakeridge Health system is proceeding, inasmuch as the foundation's fund raising efforts are permitted to help the Ajax location and not sent elsewhere.

The APHF is currently raising money for "Alaris Pumps" having committed to purchase 10 of these at $5000 apiece, and are looking to community partners such as our club to help. These pumps will significantly reduce the possibility of error in the administration of patient needs after procedures, and their capabilities will grow as the hospital IT system becomes more comprehensive.

Just1Item

 

If EVERY shopper, EACH and EVERY WEEK bought JUST 1 item for the Food Bank and dropped it off at a local Food Bank Donation Bin located at the front of the supermarket they shop at, we would put an end to hunger in this country.
