A Story We Love to Share (from Mr. Vic Juba)
A mother brought in her sick six year-old son to Emergency at the Lloydminster Hospital. As is normal in a very busy department, the wait was fairly
lengthy. Patience had run out for the young boy so he turned to his mother
and said "can we go home now?" "Not until you have seen the Doctor" she
replied. This answer was not good enough for the boy -- "but Mom", he
insisted "we have to go now because our Christmas concert is tonight and
we are going to be on the stage at the Big Juba." We love this story!
One story that shows the impact of our organization is that of a young man who as a youth danced on our stage and then as a teen went on to help organize competition in the local Ukrainian Dance Festival held at our venue. Today he is a teacher in our community and now watches his students perform on our stage. Our impact in our community is truly full circle.
Why to Give
"The Arts and Individual
Well-Being in Canada", the 39th report in the Statistical Insights on
the Arts series, examines whether connections exist between Canadians’
cultural activities and their personal well-being. Compared with those who did not attend a play in 2010, the report shows that theatre attendees:
Are much more likely to report that they have very good or excellent health
Are much more likely to report that they have very good or excellent mental health
Are much more likely to volunteer
Are less likely to feel trapped in a daily routine
Are more likely to know many or most of their neighbours
Are more likely to have done a favour for a neighbour in the past month
Are more likely to report very strong satisfaction with life.
