Autumn 2016 Newsletter

What an absolute pleasure it has been for me to meet several of our elderly citizens celebrating their 100th birthday. Most recent, was the delightful Vivienne Jones who celebrated with an open house for her neighbors and who loves her visits to her local coffee shops in Walkerville during her daily walks.

experience at this time of year. Those who have lost loved ones miss them even more, many people struggle
financially and others feel very lonely. Let us all take time to reflect on what is good and positive about our life and
be thankful, and remember that it is a far greater gift to give rather than receive.
