Canadian Cancer Society honours Helene Harstead

The Bella Coola Chapter of the Canadian Cancer Society honours Helene Harstead with appreciation plaque

Helene Harestad was honoured by local chapter of Canadian Cancer at their March meeting March. 8.

She was awarded a plaque to show appreciation of the years as a dedicated volunteer for the Society.

Helene is perhaps best known in the community for her work during Cancer month when she was at the table selling daffodils as part of the group’s cancer awareness program. She served as Secretary, Treasurer and Campaign Manager since she joined the group in 1985.

The local Chapter was formed in 1981 with Joyce Mikkelson as President and is the main organization raising funds for Cancer locally. The group still has a number of active charter members.

New faces are always welcome – interested persons please phone: Margaret @ 250 980 2289; Pat @ 250 982 2308 or Milica @ 250 982 2203.
