A family member’s recent visit to Twin Lakes Village resulted in not only some fun activities but also a chance to learn about some games people play in another region of Canada.

Susan Moores was at the Sarnia senior living community to visit her mother, Evelyn Ball, and decided to bring some games to share and teach residents and team members.

Susan lives in Nunavut, one of Canada’s three territories, and wanted to teach everyone some of the ways people pass the time, says fun co-ordinator Jennifer Beselaere.

Jennifer notes the games needed few supplies and can be played by people of all ages and abilities. The items needed to play these games can easily be obtained and included dice, buttons, string and old phone books.

“The games we learned are played by young and old in Nunavut and were such a hit here at Twin Lakes Village,” said Jennifer.

“Our residents had a great time and enjoyed the games immensely. We were very thankful, and we appreciated Sue spending the time to teach us and share a few laughs.”
