Smiles All Around

Something very special has been happening at the Governor's Walk Retirement Residence!

Residents have been packaging healthy snacks for the children at the Boys and Girls Club. Under the direction of Peter Gareau, they have provided over 800 snacks -- stppping because of the Ontario-wide shutdown on December 26, 2020.

Children attending our after-school program, Before- and After-School in Manor Park, handmade holiday cards to thank each of the residents. And, to encourage residents to write back -- a pen-pal program, perhaps -- a self-addressed, stamped envelope was provided with each card.

Smiles all around.
