The donation will help fund outings and events this year
The residents of Pleasant Meadow Manor were on the receiving end of an act of kindness that will help make 2022 an enriching year for them when they received an annual donation from the local legion’s ladies auxiliary.
On Dec. 7, the Norwood, Ont. long-term care home’s residents’ council received a $200 cheque from the ladies’ auxiliary of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 300.
As with all monies donated to the residents’ council, the generous gift from the ladies auxiliary will be used to help pay for events that residents choose, such as outings or entertainment.
Pleasant Meadow Manor residents’ council president Gord Holliday accepted the cheque from Leslie Rogers, the Norwood legion’s ladies’ auxiliary president, who stopped by to make the presentation.
Kim Williams, the life enrichment co-ordinator at Pleasant Meadow Manor, says the home and residents’ council are grateful for the valuable community relationship between the home and the Norwood legion, noting the $200 donation will be put to good use.
“The donation, as always, was greatly appreciated and will be used for future outings,” she says.
