Word of the Month - Cooperation
DDS’s word of the month is cooperation. Our ambassador for cooperation is a famous Canadian lady named Nellie McClung. In 1927, Ms. McClung cooperated and worked together with 4 other women to help all Canadian women achieve more equal rights, including the right to vote. Read more about Nellie McClung on the Word of the Month poster outside the office, or look her up on Google! Here is a link to a fun page all about Ms. McClung. Interesting fact - she is also on a run of the Canadian $100.00 bill.
Word of the Month - GENEROSITY
Our ambassador for December's Word of the Month is Tommy Douglas. Because of his generosity and love for people, in 1966, he ensured that universal health care was available to all Canadians.
Generosity seems to be such a fitting word for this season. During this season of joy, please remember those who may be looking towards Christmas with dread or anxiety. Many families are wondering if they will be able to have anything to eat on Christmas, let alone a gift under the tree for their precious littles.
While you are buying gifts for your children, why not buy an extra and donate it to Toys for Tots? While shopping for your Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings, why not buy a little extra and donate it to the local food back? Please keep in mind what this season is truly about – kindness, generosity, and bringing joy to the lives of others.
Word of the Month - RESPONSIBILITY
November’s Word of the Month is responsibility and Sir John A. Macdonald is a great representative for this. Who is Sir MacDonald? He was a very important man – he was the one who essentially created Canada! Sir MacDonald was our very first prime minister in 1867. He believed that the people could unite and create a country and he took on the responsibility of doing just that. Sir MacDonald worked very hard to bring people together into a new nation we call Canada. Stop by the office to see the Word of the Month poster and stay tuned for more on Sir John A. MacDonald and what responsibility is all about.
