Fun in the Sun! Summer Social 2017!

Our Annual Summer Social & BBQ held on July 20th was a great success and a good time was had by all who attended.

Though there was the threat of clouds, the weather held and everyone was able to enjoy a delicious barbecue dinner in our Front Courtyard. Dinner was followed up by some great entertainment by Linda & Malcom "The Suede Dogs".

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.
