In celebration of Mental Health Awareness Week from Oct. 5 to 11 the Centennial Centre for Mental Health and Brain Injury will be hosting a unique cultural event to which everyone is invited.
The exciting theme of the Oct. 7. Open House and Silent Auction at the Centennial Centre main gymnasium will be ‘Mindful Expressions’. This delightful event promises to be a special time and opportunity for various artists, who are residents of the hospital as well as from our community and districts to display or demonstrate their varied talents.
A congenial invitation is extended by the Alberta Health Services (David Thompson Health Region) to all patients, staff members, family, friends, volunteers and guests; who are artistically inclined as well as those who are interested in the talents of others. The open house, art show, and silent auction will be featured on Oct 7 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Organizers are searching for various forms of artwork, such as a paintings, drawings, poetry, sketches, stained glass, woodcarvings, quilting, flower arrangements and any other ideas and items that can be added to the exciting display. Musically gifted people are also required to provide the background music for the event. If you, or someone you know would like to display, demonstrate, or perhaps donate some artwork to the occasion please get in touch with Colleen McGinnis by phone at 403-783-7634.
Mindful Expressions promises to be a great time for people at the Centennial Centre and throughout the community to get together and share their talents, friendship and support in a caring and welcome atmosphere. All proceeds from the silent auction will be put towards special entertainment for the year round enjoyment of the patients.
