REMINDER - This morning (Tuesday, May 23rd)

Charlene Shaw: Kidney Health and Treatments
On Tuesday, May 23rd, at 10:00 am in the program room of the Deep River Library, Charlene Shaw, Coordinator of the Nephrology Program at the Renfrew Victoria Hospital, will talk about maintaining kidney health and the treatments available for those with compromised kidneys, including organ donor programs. 

 

2023 May 18

Upcoming SFC Events for May

 (Amendment to start time of Military Wives Choir Performance, below)

 

Tee Lake Paddle

Encouraged by the success of our Snake River canoe/kayak trip, we are moving forward with our plan for the Friday, May 26th paddle on Tee Lake. Those who signed up earlier will be contacted shortly with more details. There is still time to get on board by emailing SFC Central at uovsfc55@gmail.com.

We will meet at the Valu-Mart parking lot at 9:30 am, aiming to arrive at the boat launch at Tee Lake near Rolphton at 10:00. We will tour both sections of Tee Lake and come back to the picnic tables on the beach for lunch.  This is a BYOL (bring your own lunch) and BYOB (bring your own boat) affair.  Rain date is Monday, May 29th. You need to be a member of the SFC and have a signed waiver to participate.

Pierre Berton has famously argued that a true Canadian can get up to all sorts of antics in a canoe without tipping, but we don't want anyone taking any chances. A “Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly'' of you and your boat would be a bone-chilling experience; the water is currently 14 degrees Celsius.

 

Charlene Shaw: Kidney Health and Treatments

On Tuesday, May 23rd, at 10:00 am in the program room of the Deep River Library, Charlene Shaw, Coordinator of the Nephrology Program at the Renfrew Victoria Hospital, will talk about maintaining kidney health and the treatments available for those with compromised kidneys, including organ donor programs.

Did you know?  In 1943, Dutch physician Willem Kolff created a dialyzer prototype using orange juice cans, auto parts, and sausage casings. Just two years later, in 1945, Kolff successfully treated a 67-year-old woman suffering from kidney failure with his hemodialysis machine. Kolff's groundbreaking work earned him the title of Father of Artificial Organs and established him as one of the most significant physicians of the 20th century.

 

Petawawa Military Wives Choir

The Petawawa Military Wives Choir will give a spring concert at the Deep River Legion on Tuesday, May 30th, doors open 6:30, performance commences at 7pm. The choir will perform an ABBA medley, “Make You Feel My Love" by Bob Dylan, “Annie's Song”, a 60's medley, “9 to 5" by Dolly Parton,” Don't Ever Give Up”, “River of Dreams", to name just a few.

This concert is open to the general public.  Payment of $10 per person, in advance, is appreciated as it gives us an idea of how many to expect.  E-transfer funds to uovsfc55@gmail.com, or use our box at the Deep River Town Hall.  Drops-ins are welcome, but will be charged a little extra.

Canadian Clock Museum Tour & Lunch - May 16

Clock House Museum Tour
Are you one of those people who made a mental note to visit the Canadian Clock Museum after it opened in May 2000 and still haven't followed through? This is Canada's only clock museum and features a broad range of Canadian-made and Canadian-label clocks dating from the early 1800s to the present time. Curator and Horologist Allan Symons has more clocks than Doc Brown in "Back to the Future", and knows a whole lot more about them.
Allan tours 10 people at a time, so to accommodate as many as possible, we have arranged two hour-long tours on May 16, one 11:00 am, and one at 2:00 pm. Lunch on the Yacht Club Patio will be sandwiched between the two tours. You can eat before or after a tour, or not at all. The choice is yours. Just let us know at uovsfc55@gmail.com
