Landmark Village had a pre-Canada Day celebration at the Sarnia seniors living community June 30 that focused on both Canadian pride and helping others.
The “Proud to be Canadian Canada Day Celebration” included a barbecue lunch, a 50-50 draw, a lemonade stand and walker wash.
Money raised from these activities was put towards the Landmark Village social committee fund and, in keeping with the Steeves & Rozema mission of “creating communities that are good for life,” a portion of the funds was allotted to Compassion Canada to support the child Landmark Village sponsors through the charity.
The lemonade stand and walker wash were operated by children and grandchildren of Landmark Village team members. Residents, some sporting squeaky-clean walkers, thanks to the children, were also treated to strawberry shortcake made with fresh, local strawberries.
The afternoon was capped off with a performance from the “energetic” Frank St. Germain on piano.
Landmark Village fun co-ordinator Brent Hart says the day’s entertainment and festivities pleased everyone, especially residents.
“It was a fun afternoon, and the staff and residents enjoyed it,” he says. “And (there was) red and white everywhere.”
