VOLUNTEERS: COMMUNITY VISITORS SCHEME The Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) aims to enrich the quality of life for residents in aged care facilities, who may be socially isolated or lonely, and who would benefit from a friendly visitor. In Canowindra the CVS in ran in conjunction with Moyne Eventide Home. Our volunteer visitors visit once a fortnight and are matched, where possible, with a resident according to shared interests, common background and potential compatibility. Community visitors are volunteers who care about older people, give willingly of their time and bring a smile to the face and a song to the heart of a lonely older person. Currently we are looking for people to join our lovely team of volunteers in Canowindra. Are you willing to give your time to visit an older person living in an Aged Care facility? If you are a person who has something to offer our older generation, and have some time to spare, we would love to hear from you. To celebrate our Community Visitors and their special friends, HACC will be having a morning tea on Wednesday 23 May 2012 at Moyne Eventide Home, Canowindra at 10am. We invite all of our current CVS volunteers and anyone who may be interested in becoming a volunteer to join us. Please contact HACC on 6344 1199 if you are interested in attending.

CANOWINDRA: READY, SET, READ! Yes, it’s that time of year again...th
e third annual Canowindra Community Reading Day in being held on Tuesday 22 May 2012, at Canowindra Services Club Function Centre and Memorial Park. 2012 is the National Year of Reading, and according to the 2006 Adult Literacy and Life Skills Survey, nearly half of all Australians (46%) don’t have the literacy skills they need to cope with the complex demands of everyday life and work in the emerging knowledge-based economy. Yes, it’s true! You can see for yourself at www.abs.gov.au/
ausstats/abs@.nsf/mf/4228.0 So, what is literacy? Our children develop literacy from when they are born. Literacy is more than just reading or writing. It is being able to use language through speaking and listening, reading and viewing, drawing and writing. Literacy gives people power and choices. This year the Canowindra Community Reading Day is focusing once again on ideas for parents, grandparents and the community to be a part of helping children on the road to lifelong literacy. Activities planned for the day include book readings, presentations by local artist Carissa Ramsay on the inspiration for her paintings, story- telling by Noel Christian, face painting, music and a dramatisation by the Canowindra High School students! The Canowindra Community Reading Day will commence at 10am and finish with a Sausage sizzle around 12noon. Everyone is welcome to come along and join in for some fun and learning. The plans are in place, the books are ready, and all we need is you!
