Thank you from Our Place Society

Hello Dr. Taylor & Ms. Newbold,

On behalf of Steven Seltzer, Manager of Special Events & Corporate Philanthropy & Our Place Fund Development Team, thank you so much for your contribution to Cathy Scott’s special meal initiative to support the people we serve at Our Place Society and the local Chinese business community.

It was perfect timing and much needed comfort for those struggling to get by.

We extend our best wishes to you and the Mayfair Optometric Team during this difficult time.

Thank you.

Eyes of Society: Art, Traditional Knowledge, and the Watchmen of Haida Gwaii

Eyes of Society: Art, Traditional Knowledge, and the Watchmen of Haida Gwaiiis a collection of over thirty works of art by ten Haida and non-indigenous artists. Coming from different regional and cultural backgrounds in Canada, all the artists explore the meaning of ‘sense of place’ on the islands of Haida Gwaii through their own artistic traditions. Through their art, language and beliefs, they investigate the notion that artists, traditionally, have been the “eyes of society.”

Love comes in Shoebox Project

Help make Mother’s Day special for women in need by a donation to the Shoebox Project.

This Mother’s Day, dozens of women — some living in shelters, others at risk of homelessness — will open a box filled with love ......

.....Last year, Mary Lou Newbold delivered more than 20 boxes to Artemis, a YWCA group, and the Boys and Girls Club.

This year, she has names for more than 80 recipients, submitted from Artemis, Boys and Girls Club, Esquimalt Neighbourhood House and the Cridge Centre. She needs help to fulfil all the requests.

Newbold took on this task last year in honour of her own mom, who was a victim of abuse.

Participants can drop off a gift-wrapped shoebox (or a financial donation) at Mayfair Optometric, 3196 Douglas St. For more information, contact or go to
