Nora has planned her retirement and her last day with the Manitoba Bleeding Disorders Program is Thursday, August 18th. The position of Nurse Coordinator has been posted. If there are any notices about nursing coverage or changes to ordering your product, we will post notices on the web site: Nora will remain on the Chapter’s Education Committee and will continue her membership on the CHS National’s Program Committee.

The Chapter is planning a picnic celebration for Nora on Saturday, September 10th. The picnic will take place at the Duck Pond Shelter at the Assiniboine Park from noon until 3 pm. The Chapter will provide hotdogs, hamburgers and drinks. Please feel free to bring a salad or desert. Come out and have a visit with Nora and other Chapter members!

We thought it would be a nice idea to create a memory book for her. If you have photos of Nora you would be willing to share, email the digital copies to or send them to the office and we will scan them and return them to you. Please send photos of your family. Please label everything so we can add the names under the photos. If you want to include a little story, or a message, we will be sure to add that as well.

We hope to see you at the picnic! It will be a great chance to spend some time reminiscing and to send Nora off on her new adventure with all of our best wishes.
