Still needs to be met as the year comes to a close

For some the year coming to a close is probably a good thing. It has been a different kind of year for many of us with plenty of challenges.

It has seen its share of conflict and controversy, political changes and upheaval, and weather that just didn’t seem to co-operate.
On the flip side, it’s been a good year for a few reasons too. The Meadows long-term care facility has made a positive change in the quality of care that can be provided. The new operating tables that are coming to the Cypress Regional Hospital will bring new and better possibilities with surgery, thanks to your support.
As we look forward to 2017, there are many needs in the Cypress Health Region that we aim to meet with your generous help.
We have not yet finalized all our plans for the coming year, but it is safe to say there are needs we plan to address across the Cypress Health Region. It’s the nature of medical equipment. It has a short lifespan partly due to the amount of use it sees and partly due to the ever-changing and improving technology being offered. We aim to help the health region to meet the needs of the area residents and ensure the health care you deserve is here when you need it.
In a way, we aren’t that different from most businesses and farms, looking at what the next year might bring and making sure we are prepared and have what we need to be successful.
Having some help is always a good thing, someone who is willing to pitch in. This fall, one of those willing to help us is the local Crop Production Services team. They have decided to lend a hand to keep health care strong in southwest Saskatchewan.
If you buy any Proven Seed Canola or InVigor L159 Canola, CPS will donate $10 per bag sold. If you buy Awaken ST seed treatment, CPS will donate $10 per jug sold. This promotion is on until the endof May, and we look forward to the support it will provide for the Dr. Noble Irwin Foundation.
In a year where the weather has put a lot of farmers under the gun, it’s great to be able to give them a way to continue to support health care just by purchasing the items they need for the coming year. We are grateful to Crop Production Services for this opportunity.
If your group or business would like to pitch in and help keep health care strong, we are open to suggestions and opportunities and would be happy to work with you.
A reminder as well if your accountant or financial advisor has suggested making a few more charitable donations to help you with your taxes in the spring, the donation will need to be made by the end of December.
If you would like to talk to someone at the Foundation about a donation, and how it can help here in the southwest, phone 306-778-3314 or stop in to 2051 Saskatchewan Drive, Swift Current, right across the street from the hospital.
