Gatherings and musings from Circle of Care


Are you ready for summer? Ready for long warm days and evenings, summer visitors, events and concerts?

Circle of Care and Trinity Church will be the recipients of donations from a concert to be held at the church on Sunday, July 2. Scott Baird, musician extraordinaire, is returning to Point Roberts from Maui to entertain us. He has resided and played professionally in Maui as a solo artist, with his band, and with other artists of note.

Scott Hackleman, another musician extraordinaire from Point Roberts, is a master sitar builder and performer. “Thanks to Ravi Shankar’s sponsorship, I lived in India for about a year on a grant from the American Institute of Indian Studies to apprentice with a master musical instrument maker. Since then, I’ve been busy repairing and building Indian classical instruments as well as commissions for bespoke musical instruments,” Hackleman said.

Circle of Care will host a reception and silent auction following the concert. Stay tuned for more information and times in the ePB and social media.

The Circle of Care bus schedule will be re-inaugurated on Thursday, June 8. The shuttle will be picking up residents from their homes by 9 a.m. every Thursday and be returning them by 5 p.m. at the latest.

The purpose of the service is to take residents to Whatcom County medical and dental appointments. We encourage residents to make their appointments between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Additionally, the bus will take residents to special events in Whatcom County and Delta, B.C. from time to time. Please look for announcements on social media and on our website

The bus was most recently put in service on May 21 to shuttle folks from parking lots to the fire hall for Henry Rosenthal’s very special memorial service.

Finally, we wish to remind everyone about the benefits of volunteering in this wonderful community. 

Volunteering can have a multitude of benefits. Some of which include:

Improved mental health: Studies have shown that volunteering can have positive effects on mental health, reducing stress, anxiety and symptoms of depression.

Increased social connections: Volunteering can be a great way to meet new people and build social connections, which can combat loneliness and isolation.

Making a difference: Volunteering allows individuals to contribute to the betterment of their community and make a tangible difference in the lives of others.

Overall, volunteering can be a fulfilling and rewarding experience, providing both personal and community benefits.
