One year later -- the Oasis

It's one year down the road.  Plants have been growing.  People have been visiting.  See what's become of our barren rooftop!

Write a will

We all ponder the future.  With some reluctance we think about what will happen.  Have we prepared?

Mirage supporter needed

We have had a brilliant idea, especially brilliant for your image/profile/community spirit.  Let me explain.

We are the Victoria General Hospital Auxiliary and we have charitable status and fund-raise to help the hospital.  In Victoria we have 2 hospitals and Vic General is the only baby hospital within hours.

The Auxiliary discovered a rooftop patio area adjacent to the pediatric wards that was unused and inaccessible.  Last year we created Oasis@3North:  A project of the AUXILIARY.

This is the beginning for the trees and shrubs and we look forward to Spring.  The Oasis is open and now accessible to patients, visitors, volunteers, and staff.  This cost $75,000.

At the entry to the Oasis there are some ducts which are ugly and imposing.  The Auxiliary is prepared to add some plantings, but we are still stuck with the ducts.  Now for the brilliant part – decorating the ducts!

I hope you will see this as a great project.  Let's communicate!
