I-CARE Literacy Program
CA DCA S-001 · Series · 1977-2020

Series predominately consists of published materials by the I-CARE adult literacy program: the group's newsletter and later its annual publication featuring student writing. This series also includes additional textual records related to I-CARE's creation and early years, its operations, and various events.

The first I-CARE newsletter was launched in January 1979. It was called "The Nameless Newsletter" and was edited by Sheila Taillefer and Linda Ellwood. By July of that year, the newsletter was simply titled "I CARE", which would remain in place until the fall of 1982 when it was renamed "Breakthrough". Early editions of Breakthrough contained event announcements, meeting agendas and minutes, photocopied articles, information resources for tutors, crossword puzzles, activities, and artwork and graphics. The newsletter's tagline was: "A newsletter published for literacy volunteers in the Douglas College region." However, by the 1990s the target audience of the newsletter had expanded to include learners as much as tutors. In the September 1992 issue, Breakthrough started including a section called "Writing For Our Future" which featured short written works by students from the program. (Writing For Our Future was the name of a stand-alone, annual publication by I-CARE featuring student writing. It was launched in 1990.) Breakthrough has been published on a monthly and later quarterly basis, uninterrupted until the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in winter 2020.

The memorial was intended to give members of the Jewish community a physical space to remember loved ones lost during the Holocaust, and to ensure the Holocaust is never forgotten. The VHCS’s Cemetery Service Committee, and later, staff of the VHEC programmed an annual ceremony on the Sunday between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (the High Holidays), a Sunday traditionally observed as a time of the year to remember those who have passed away. Some programs are presented with the Schara Tzedeck congregation and the Jewish War Veterans.
