Last night we had 110 people attend a fabulous Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner! Thank you to our sponsor Amica Mature Lifestyles for sponsoring the evening and to their staff who helped with the service. Ambrosia Catering prepared a delicious Roast Beef dinner complete with Yorkshire Pudding! We were entertained by our Choirs – the Hampton Singers and the Saanich Songmen! Our volunteers and staff did a great job in bringing it all together.
Thank you to all!

It’s Make-a-Will Week. Do you have one?May 8-14, 2018 is Make-A-Will Week in British Columbia.

It is estimated that only 55% of British Columbians have a legally valid and up-to-date will. The reasons given for not having a Will include not having enough assets, not knowing where to start, or being too young. If you pass away without a Will the government will decide who your beneficiaries are and how your assets will be divided up – not you.

Prepare for the future and take action now. There are many resources in the community that are available to you. Visit www.gov.bc.ca/makeawill.
