In honour of our cherished Wife, Mother, Bubbie, Sister, Aunt and Friend, we have established the permanent Fern Mednick Fund for the Creative Arts.

The highlight of Fern’s time at Baycrest was her daily attendance at the Donald and Elaine Rafelman Creative Arts Studio to bead, paint and make ceramics.

All proceeds of this fund will be used to support the Studio.

With love,

The Mednick Family

Hi! My name is Rachel and I have created this "Swim For Bubbie" fundraiser for Baycrest's Creative Arts Program in honour of my Bubbie, Fern Mednick, who is a resident at the Apotex Centre. The highlight of my Bubbie's weekdays is the Creative Arts Program. Bubbie Fern has created and painted clay bowls and vases, she has tie-dyed scarfs, and she has beaded bracelets for each of the swimmers who will participate in the North American JCC Maccabi Games in Miami later this summer (my Dad and my Saba are coaching the team!). I have also participated in the program and made my own artwork on PA Days! More recently, we have been participating in the Family Creative Arts Pilot Program on Sunday mornings with my sister, Amy, and my cousins, Sammy and Leigh! My Bubbie also loves swimming, so I decided to "Swim For Bubbie" to raise funds for Baycrest's Creative Arts Program! The "Swim For Bubbie" will take place on June 25, 2017 at the North Thornhill Community Centre from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Our goal is for all swimmers to swim a combined total of 10 kilometers and I plan to swim at least 3 kilometers myself. Please consider supporting my effort to raise money for the Creative Arts Program. Any and all amounts make a big difference for the program. If you would like to swim with us, please let us know by June 15, 2017. There's also plenty of seating overlooking the pool, so fans, cheerleaders and signs are welcome! If you have any questions or require further information please contact my Dad, Avi Mednick, at avi-mednick@rogers.com. Thanks for your support!!! RACHEL
