SOS (Senior’s Organized Services) is located in Victoria Park Lodge 135 3rd St. South, Souris. Our office hours are Monday to Friday 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., phone 204-483-3106.

We are here to help you, the seniors, we have people who enjoy cleaning and yard word, and will come and give you a hand with daily or weekly or monthly chores. You will pay them, but it is so worth it to get someone to help! 

Oh what a clear and bright day and the snowflakes are gently falling as I type up this report. But it’s winter in Manitoba and as we know our weather changes daily, so dress warmly and enjoy!

Victoria Lifeline is also hooked up by SOS and this service will get you help with just the push of a button 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. Give is a call at the office for more information and prices.

We go to Brandon every third Wednesday with the Handi-Van to have a nice outing and to let you shop for those things you can’t buy here in town. Some meet family and friends for lunch at the Shoppers Mall, and that is a real treat too. Next trip will be on February 18, call our office to get booked on the ride. Have a day outing and see some new friendly faces.

Hard to believe we are almost (will be by the time you read this) half way through January, 2020 already!  Time sure seems to just fly by, so remember, to do or say something kind to those you meet, you'll be glad you did and you'll make others feel better.

Words to Think About: (wouldn't this be the best news ever!)

If there is righteousness in the heart,

There will be beauty in the character.

If there is beauty in the character,

There will be harmony in the home.

If there is harmony in the home,

There will be order in the nation.

When there is order in each nation,

There will be PEACE in the world.

Don't forget the exercises at VPL on Monday and Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. and fun bingo on Wednesday afternoons at 1:30, come and join in the fun.  Exercises at Crescent Manor on Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. too. (these exercises are just for fun to limber us up a little and you only need to do the ones you can, there is no pressure at all. We have lots of fun and visits after too. )

That's all for this week so take care and we hope to hear from you soon, and remember if you are in hospital or the PCH please call our office if you would like a visit we would love to come and say hello. If you are ever at home alone and feeling lonely, we would for sure come to visit you there too.
