SSW 2 Wickman

Pharmacist Dr. Julie Wickman discussed the osteoporosis.

The Ridgerunners are first group to meet as Big Canoe’s Clubhouse at Lake Sconti reopened after three weeks of renovation. Dr. Julie Wickman spoke to an overflow group about osteoporosis, a bone disease that is common in older women. Wickman who has a doctorate in pharmacy and owns a pharmacy in Dahlonega was well-received by the members who had many questions and comments. Wickman is sure to be invited to return. Following the Ridgerunners meeting, 50+ members stayed for lunch. The tables were beautifully set with a winter theme in blue and white.

SSW 3 Diners

The first daily luncheon special received a thumbs up from clubhouse diners.

New daily luncheon specials offered at the clubhouse. The beef tenderloin was the opening day special on Tuesday. Served on a warm brioche and topped with grilled onions, tomato, lettuce and melted bleu cheese with horseradish sauce on the side, the offering was definitely a crowd pleaser. Specials in the $10 - $13 range are on the menu each day.

SSW 4 Visits

Recent volunteer training session for BC Visits

Big Canoe Wellness Collaborative in need of volunteers. According to incoming President of the Board of Directors Shiraz Alikhan, “As our organization matures and expands its services, we are seeking more volunteers who may be interested in leadership positions. While some board and steering committee members have chosen to continue in service, these are not open-ended commitments. We are especially seeking volunteers for the steering committee that oversees the program operations. In addition to the steering committee chairperson, each service area–info, meals, visits, and ride –has a program coordinator and back-up who manage the program and serve on the steering committee. Having two volunteers associated with each program allows incoming volunteers to learn their responsibilities and ensures continuity of services to program clients when the coordinator is not available.” Contact Linda or Shiraz at This email address is being protected from spambots.
