The Finance Committee is looking for volunteers to join the Finance Committee. The committee meets 6-8 times a year on weekday evenings between 6-8 p.m. The Finance Committee’s purpose is to oversee the financial affairs of Momiji Health Care Society on behalf of the Board of Directors.
If you are curious about Momiji’s finances and are interested in joining this committee, please send an email to the attention of the Chair of the Finance Committee, Dereck Oikawa at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that Momiji’s Toshikoshi Party will be held on THURSDAY, DECEMBER 19TH not Wednesday, December 18th. The date was changed after Momiji Matters was printed. We hope to see you here!
As the Holiday Season approaches, so do our annual Holiday fundraising programs! We are pleased to offer the following programs again this year:
HOLIDAY TREAT PROGRAM: Shortbread, Mincemeat, Gingerbread, and more… Our volunteer bakers will soon be busy making delicious homemade cookies for Momiji to be sold to our tenants, their families and community members. The cookies are packaged by our volunteer elves and come in various sizes and prices ranging from our Santa Superior Box (45 cookies for $20.00) to our Elves Dozen (12 cookies for $7.00). They make a great gift – for yourself, a friend or a loved one.
VANDERMEER WINTER FUNDRAISING PROGRAM: Vandermeer Nursery has grown high quality plants in Ajax, including poinsettias and cyclamen, for over 50 years. These high quality plants are the focus of their annual Winter Fundraising program. The program includes winter-decorated baskets and evergreen planters in a wide range of prices. Under the program, Momiji purchases the plants at a discount and sell them at cost. These seasonal plants and planters can spruce up your home or can be given as a gift. We even deliver to our tenants!
Please contact Sheri-Lynn at email@example.com or at 416.261.6683, ext. 259 to order or for more information. The ordering deadline for both programs is at the end of November. Pre-payment is required.
All proceeds from both of these fundraising activities go to Momiji’s Senior Active Living Centre to be used to fund Dance! Dance! Dance! with the National Ballet
or the Momiji Singers – two very popular programs that no longer have funding.
You are invited to Momiji’s Annual General Meeting at 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, September 17, 2019. Come to hear about the happenings of the past year and our direction for the future. New members are always welcome!
Japonica is fast approaching and our team is hard at work cataloguing all of the wonderful donations. Due to the volume, we will be unable to accept donations for this event after Monday, August 26th. Please note that due to a lack of storage space, we are also unable to accept Bazaar donations until early 2020. Thanks and we hope to see you on September 7th!
We are saddened to share that one of our Founders, Dr. Fred Sunahara has passed away. As one of the venerated and beloved founders of the Momiji Health Care Society (1978) and the Seniors Residence (1992), Fred lobbied and struck the first shovel to establish a home and eldercare for seniors of Japanese descent. Our most sincere condolences to the Sunahara family.
