On Saturday we welcomed over 110 guests to our annual barbecue, as tenants, friends and families came out to enjoy good food and good company (and our raffle draw!) in our sunny courtyard. Special thanks to our staff and volunteers, who helped the afternoon run smoothly!

In memory of our beloved tenant, David Kent, who passed away last month. All the watches went for $5 each or $8 for two. Some of the antique clocks were sold by auction.

Take a look at our ETAG instruction program on iPads called Seniors in Touch. It’s been such a hit that our sign up sheets fill up instantly. This six-month program was launched in mid September and is funded by the Ontario Government.
Seniors take part in hour-long classes every week for free! They are learning to play games online, take selfies and google things – great fun!
