Birthday Party

     Please note the Birthday Party for this month will be held on Friday, February 22nd. Remember all birthday parties are best wishes only. This month the following individuals will celebrate their birthdays; Tracy Lester, Craig Keeping, Mark Turner, Stephen Brocklehurst, Darryl Woodrow and Gertie Taylor.


     I kindly ask that you please check with your son/daughter every morning to ensure they have their hats, mitts, scarves etc. as they will spend some of their time outside; even if it is only walking to and from the bus.

Coins for Prizes

     We are continuing with collecting coins for prizes for our clients’ activities and special events. Once again, I kindly thank you for your support and ask that if you have any loose coin lying around in your pocket, purse or drawer and would like to donate them, please send them along. Many thanks for your generosity during 2018. Your kindness is greatly appreciated.

Recycling Program

     Many thanks for your support of the recycling program. This month Thursday, February 21st, has been designated as a recycling blitz day. If you or any of your friends have recyclables that you might like to donate to the program, we would appreciate it. Recyclables can be dropped off at the Perlin Centre on Thursday, February 21st, and we will take them to the recycling depot. All monies go directly to the client recreation fund. As per government regulations, please ensure to remove straws, bottle stoppers etc. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.

Respite Payroll

     As you are aware the Vera Perlin Society is a non-profit, charitable organization which provides services and supports to individuals living with a developmental disability.
     As a charity we are always looking at new ways to generate revenue in order to support the services we offer. One area we are actively trying to develop is our Respite Payroll Service. We offer administration of payroll to individuals who require respite care.
     The payroll service is a benefit to the individuals who receive the respite funding as they do not have to worry about the administration or funding of the payroll. The Vera Perlin Charitable Foundation will also benefit as any revenues generated from doing this service are redirected to the programs we offer and then in turn benefit all clients of The Vera Perlin Society.
     This letter is to ask you to consider having the Vera Perlin Charitable Foundation as your payroll service provider. We currently administer a professional, dependable payroll service and would like the opportunity to do yours.
     For additional information on this service you can call Mavis Roberts at the Vera Perlin Society’s Head Office, 739-6017, or you could reach Mavis via e-mail,
     We would appreciate your consideration to provide your payroll services.

Easter Candy Cones

     The Button Shop is in the process of making Easter Candy Carrot Cones. The carrot cones are $4.00 each and the deadline for ordering is Friday, March 29th. Why not do your candy shopping with us and support the clients employed at the Button Shop?

Happy Valentine’s Day!
