Welcome Home & Congratulations Dinner For, Darlene Billy & Edgar Smith
A day to celebrate, Nuchatlaht Tribe hosted a, "Welcome Home & Celebration dinner to Congratulate Darlene Billy and Edgar Smith on their six week completion of treatment at the Namgis Centre." Cathy Michael our Community Liaison Worker, along with the help of Audrey Smith had planned this dinner. She sent invites to our neighbours Kyuquot and Ehattesaht, requesting that it be "POTLUCK IF YOU CAN," to make sure we had enough food to feed everyone.
When our guest of honours showed up, their were tears in Darlene's eyes, my guess is she was so overwhelmed with how many family and friends showed up to be here with them on this glorious day.
With about 60 people that showed up to show support and celebrate their great accomplishment on their awesome journey of sobriety. There ended up to be tons of food left over, which was ok cause we just send the left overs with whomever wanted some. After we all shared a meal, the presentations started with Velina Vincent, than Audrey Smith, and Eleanor (Jessie) who gave some very inspiring words. Florence John and Stacey Miller also got up to present Darlene & Edgar Smith with some memorabilia's that came from what was put away from her late mother's belongings. Very emotional but happy moments.
I would like to give a big "THANKS" to Cathy Michael and Audrey Smith for planning such an awesome dinner. Also would like to say "A BIG GIAGANTIC THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME TO SHOW THEIR SUPPORT!" I know this meant a lot to Darlene and Edgar, thanks again.
February 27, 2015 was the kids last, "Activity day," we would like to say "A BIG THANK YOU" to, Audrey Smith & Cathy Michael for making this event happen, also for making sure our children aren't bored at home. We would also like to say "A BIG THANK YOU" to ESPERANZA group for coming and helping with cooking , keeping the kids busy with games and activities and for the awesome company.
