Subject:      Valley Regional Hospital Foundation – Face Masks

The following message and attachments were received from Sandy Glenn and are being forwarded to everyone for your information.

On numerous occasions, the Annapolis Valley Region of our Nova Scotia RCMP Veterans’ Association has been asked and has provided literally hundreds of Fidget Vests for dementia patients, Bibs for adult patients, Receiving Blankets for the local hospital, Children’s Bibs for a daycare centre, and many other projects, not only for Annapolis Valley area, but for locations in other Provinces.
This is a great reflection on our Association and reflects positively on the RCMP as well.
The Valley Region recently responded to a request from the Annapolis Valley Regional Hospital Authority for face masks and subsequently produced and donated many hundreds for this very worthwhile cause.
As we all know, there is a wide variety of mask configurations out there but I thought it might be worthwhile to share the pattern the Hospital Foundation provided, in case any of you are interested in making your own. You will see there is an opening on one side of the mask to accommodate a filter package including N95 and surgical versions.

Please find attached a copy of the pattern along with three photographs.

–  Photo 1 is simply a view of the finished product
–  Photo 2 shows how the upper loop is placed over the head
–  Photo 3 shows how the lower loop is placed and subsequently tied around the neck

I hope you find this useful.
Kindest regards to all.  Stay safe and well.
