Summer Social & BBQ 2018!

Our Annual Summer Social & BBQ held on July 12th was a great success and a good time was had by all who attended.

The weather was beautiful and everyone was able to enjoy a delicious barbecue dinner in our Front Courtyard. Dinner was followed up by some great entertainment by Nathan Aswell and Leonard Pallerstein.

Thanks go out to our Recreation staff for organizing this event and to our Food Services staff for preparing all of the delicious food and our Family Council who organized the raffle. We would also like thank the many staff who volunteered their time to help out at this event.

Be sure to check out our web photo album of this event (Click on the link above).
