Yvonne & MacNeal Lashley at Canadian Club of Halton last Thursday evening. The guest speaker was Ted Barris.
Ted is the author of 19 bestselling non-fiction books, the latest of which is Rush to Danger: Medics in the line of Fire.
Throughout the winter of 1945, Ted’s father, 22-year old sergeant medic Alex Barris, waged a battle night and day to save lives in the middle of the Battle of the Bulge, the bloodiest campaign that the US Army faced during the liberation of Europe.
Ted’s pursuit of his father’s story led to the unique front-line recounting in Rush to Danger of the experiences of military medics, field surgeons, nursing sisters, stretcher-bearers, orderlies and ambulance drivers in war zones over the past 160 years. Ted explores the evolution of battlefield medicine and reveals why men and women sporting the red cross on their helmets and sleeves don’t flee to safety but choose instead to rush to assist.
We were fortunate to hear a wonderful presentation at our Rotary Club the other week from Detective Constable Derek Gray, Halton Regional Police Service, Vulnerable Person Unit, Elder Abuse and Frauds. Truly eye opening and a MUST attend if you can.
On February 12th, Karla represented Alert Best Nursing at the first Food for Life- All Around The Table, 25th anniversary kick off dinner. Food for Life has grown into the largest food recovery program in the Halton Region bringing fresh and nutritious food to those in need. They are a collaborative leader in sourcing, sorting and sharing fresh food throughout the Region and Hamilton. Through 107 Food for Life programs and agencies they serve more than 18,000 people struggling with hunger each month. Food for Life Canada rescued and distributed over 4 million pounds of food in 2019, all donated by many generous suppliers. This good quality, fresh food which has a retail value of over $10 million would have otherwise gone to landfill.
