No wrong I want to right I don't want to join the fight. What a sad day If we all felt this way. With no one to care Or even to share. We must not give up hope Or feel at the end of our rope. If we are to survive And remain alive We cannot let ourselves feel this way. But take courage and face each new day. By showing we care. And allowing ourselves to share. ~ 3310A•ll33.LNn10A Ruth Hunt ~ r-e: z -t m ...., ~ 0 -n .,, L&.I c.., -o· ~ rx La.I LU ..... z :::, _,,J ... Q > ' '1 o\....

CAR. - c .-~~ ------- -- -\-Volunteer Fundraising Car Wash On Saturday August ·25, 1984 a Volunteer Car Wash was held in the basement of First United Church. It was a beautiful day just filled with sunshine. Over 20 volunteers participated for most of the day in the event. We gathered together and went over to the Church about 10:30. Soon we were ready to go. Some of us set to work on cars while others walked back and forth on the street with sandwich board advertising. About 2:00 we had lunch brought over from the Carnegie kitchen. We continued washing cars till about 5:00 . I think everyone agreed that it was a really good time. Not to mention that some money was brought into the Volunteer fund. Plans are in the works to make it a regular event. Please join us at the next one. Nancy Sweedler P.S. The next Car Wash has been scheduled for Saturday September 22. See me for more information. FuND RAISE JI M OOLAt-l ~- VOLUNTEER•VOICE ~he Birth of a League (Downtown Eastside Juvenile Soccer League) September will officially be registration month for the D.E.J.S.L. If you would like to register contact Dan West at Carnegie Center, 401 Main St., telephone 665-2220. You can also call 681-5913 and leave a message for room #417. Teams will be formed in age groupings from 6 - 17 years. Volunteers are needed to help make this program a success. The D.E.J.S.L. has registered a total of 12 players in various age groupings so far. Youth soccer programs in British Columbia have been rated number one in North America for many years and there is no reason why this trend should not continue. Some uniforms are available to the League c~urtesy of the Grandview Legion at 6th and Commercial. Our major objective in getting the uniforms is having the bodies to fill them. Once again the registration is a no cost transaction but donations will be welcome for the League. A meeting will be held for director's positions and will be announced at a later date. The positions are as follows: President Vice-president Financial Secretary Referee in Chief Tournament Committee Coaches and Assistants Team Mothers Gym and Field Coordinator I would like to give a special thanks to those people who have helped get things going in various channnels. Jimmy Stuart Sam Stewart Fred Arrance - 3JIOA•ll33lN010A Thank you Dan West ' ~ r-e: z -t· n, .,, ~ < cs -n .,, VOLUNTEER•VOICE ~, September 14, 1984 The Lady Who Cares Nancy Sweedler and I were travelling back to the Center. A lady stopped µsat a red light and asked us for a lift. We took her 6 blocks from her home. While driving along we held a conversation. Her name is Elsie Williams, 77 years old, has a very ill husband, but wait~ there is no selfishness in her whatsoever. She is a volunteer at the UBC extended care Hospital. She walks and hitchhikes to the Hospital to do her beautiful work. She travels from 41st and Cambie to the U.B.C. She felt no pain or tears and laughed all the way. Elsie brought up a very good point which I shall try to put in motion. All O.A.P must pay for their dentistry. The only sadness that Elsie had was that a cleaning and check up at the dentist,cost $96.oo, which she could not really afford. Please, each and every volunteer just send her a note, card or letter to boost another Volunteer. After all she is older that the average volunteer in our Center and it would give us all a great lift to give our thanks to others. I Love You All~ Katherine Galan 1,___. VOLUNTEER•VOICE I l 1 l PRET£'4D THSt.E ARa FOA. RS'AL I !f ! ! ~ The Pretenders 84 - The Saga Continues Carnegie's own answer to Rodney Dangerfield completed their first season in the Downtown Eastside Slowpitch League. With their never say die attitudes and an abundance of spirit the Pretenders finished off the 1984 campaign with a resounding 17-6 thrashing of the North Shore Blue Demons. Knowing that the playoff picture had been completely erased the Pretenders showed their grit and determination to finish on a positive note. By expansion standards the Pretenders can feel proud to hold their heads high. In 19 games they recorded 6 wins, 13 losses and just missed qualifying for the plRyoffs , With a complete season under their belts look for more prosperous times ahead for the Pretenders in 1985. Many thanks to Carnegie for your support in 84. Dan West ............ -. ... . LI.I u -C >. ~ I.LI' LI.I I- . z :::s _. ~ ........ , VOLUNTEER•VOICE ---Thank You Katherine !! As the new chairperson of the Volunteer Commitee I would like to thank Katherine Galan for all the hard work, dedication and long hours she put into the Volunteer Committee. Her spirited and forthright direction of the Committee will never be forgotten.
