Although it was a week early, Betty Ann took her mom out to eat for Mother’s Day at Swiss Chalet. The rain outside didn’t stop Betty Ann from shining bright inside with her mom. Betty Ann and her mom June sat together and reminisced about the days when Betty Ann and her brothers were younger. Betty Ann was in for a surprise when her dad also came for lunch.
Gerald Parks performed for the first time at The Stage Café on Friday April 21st. He was one of many musicians who performed that night. Playing the accordion with his usual gusto he received much applause. He played Amazing Grace, Red River Valley, Maple Sugar, and It’s a Long Way to Tipperary.
He has been invited back to play in September! We hope you will be in the audience to hear him play!

In February of this year, residents of Myrtle Terrace decided to start a community meal once a month in their community room. Together they decide what food they would like to order in. So far they have had Chinese, Swiss Chalet, pizza, and who knows what they will have next!
It is has been a great opportunity for everyone to get out of their apartments, deepen friendships, and share a meal together. After a good meal everyone plays a fun, and sometimes competitive, board game!
Future plans include eating on the roof top garden of the apartment building, to enjoy warm summer nights!
Serena couldn’t remember the last time she had been bowling, so this past Tuesday she took a drive to Oshawa and went to Neb’s Fun World.
At Neb’s she played two games, and got the highest score both times, her first score was 88 and next game was 95!
Serena was laughing the whole time and couldn’t believe she beat a staff member at bowling. Serena says she can’t wait to go again!
