The Cowichan Valley gathered in an exuberant crowd Thursday, July 18 to celebrate the sod turning for the Cowichan Valley Hospice House.
Everyone was there: from spokespeople and politicians to those who had worked in the background at many, many groups and agencies who could see “their” project moving forward.
The theme of the speakers and presenters, who were led by Health Minister Adrian Dix, was community. The community needed a hospice house, and the community got together and put their backs into finding the funds needed to build it.
“High quality, compassionate end-of-life care for British Columbians is a vital service and we are committed to supporting our community partners in bringing important projects like this one to completion,” said Dix, pointing to the amazing way those partners had stepped up locally.
