Rideau PCH Receives Donation

“We eat first with our eyes”

The Royal Canadian Legion – Branch 003 – Poppy Fund of Brandon MB generously donated $2,843.42 to the Rideau Park PCH. The funds will be used to redesign the decor of one of our dining rooms so that every meal is eaten in a room that provides a comforting and appealing environment.  The current dining room was built with function in mind will benefit from decorative updates.

The dining room is a place of engagement and connection.  It is more than just a room, it’s a place where everyone comes together for the opportunity to engage in comradeship/fellowship. 

This project will be promoted to improve resident satisfaction with their meal experience.  Ultimately, this is not so much about the decor but is about respect, dignity and honoring the residents.

The funding was approved first by the Legion Brandon branch, then Legion Provincial Command, and finally Dominion Command.   Funding for a dining room has never before been approved.  Rideau Park is very proud to have been awarded the Poppy Fund Donation for this project!

Thank you for approving this project and the donation to make it successful.

Nearly 50 motorcyclists took part in the 6th Annual Memorial Ride in late August 2023 and through their support, helped contribute towards identified needs at the Dauphin Regional Health Centre (DRHC). This year, the Memorial Ride, spearheaded by Tony’s Auto Electric and JDS Laundromat in Dauphin, made its way through Parkland-area communities along Highway 5 and Mountain Road and reached its final destination in Erickson. The 300 kilometre return trip raised a total of $2,200 that was donated to the health centre, through the Dauphin Hospital Foundation.

The Memorial Ride is held in loving memory for those lost over the past year. It aims to bring people together in celebrating and recognizing the lives of those lost and doesn’t matter if people rode a motorcycle or just purchased tickets. The goal was to enjoy the day, visit with people, share memories and contribute to a worthy cause!

Organizers were very pleased with the support of communities and individuals along the way. The Dauphin Hospital Foundation and Dauphin Regional Health Centre sincerely thank the organizers, participants and all who contributed to this worthy cause.
