Brock White Enclave
The team continues to deliver in a timely manner:
* We stamp 150 beige/silver insulation or “old dusty” as we have nicknamed it.
* We stamp blue insulation or the “easy-peezey” one as we have nicknamed it; because we can do a lot – it does not require cleaning like old dusty.
* When we sweep throughout the day, we use a sweeping company to help minimize the dust.
* On Fridays, we place our smocks in the green bag in the locker room for cleaning by Canadian Linen Company. We also do a general wipe-up of our tables.
* David Moir recently joined us for a full week to see how he likes the job. It went very well.
Bye bye for now

Sylvia has been working towards her diploma in Disability and Community Support. Sylvia attended her classes full time on Monday and Tuesday each week. The remainder of the week was spent working in contract manufacturing at Madison. Sylvia worked with a group at Madison on a literacy project as part of her coursework. Sylvia has also had the opportunity to share her approaches and knowledge with the people she supports and the Development Coach team.
Not only did Sylvia excel in these courses and graduate, she was awarded the “Jason Mueller Memorial Award”! This award is intended to honour its namesake’s spirit by recognizing a student each year who is able to maintain a positive and energetic approach to their work and others.
We are fortunate to have Sylvia as part of the Development Coach team, and congratulate her on her accomplishments.

It has been a busy week here at Community Leisure. On Tuesday everyone from Community Leisure went to ImagineAbility Idol. It was a great day of listening to the musical talents of some of their coworkers and friends. On Thursday May 31st a group went out to the baseball stadium to watch a Goldeye game. An amazing time was had by all and it was the perfect event to kick off the warm weather season!
I would like to recognize Ken Simpson and Paul Meads for all their hard work on the Safety and Health Committee. Your efforts help to ensure that our building is a safe environment for all. Great job guys!
