Nurses Appreciation Week is this week. In Canada, it is always the week including Florence Nightingale’s birthday. She is considered to be the founder of modern nursing. To honour and show our appreciation for the nurses in our communities and to welcome five new nurses who have chosen to live in Spirit River, there will be a Nurses Appreciation Potluck Supper at the Centennial Hall on May 23 from 6-8pm. Everyone is invited to come: nurses past and present as well as all community members who would like to help show how much we appreciate what they do for us personally and for our communities.
