The Christmas Concert at the Saanich Centre was a fabulous afternoon! Special thanks to our sponsors Pacific Coast Health Services (formally We Care). Our 115 guests enjoyed music by our “house bands” The Hampton Singers and the Saanich Songmen. Followed by the Greater Victoria Police Chorus who were in top form again this year. Refreshments followed and all agreed it was a lovely event.
There is still more music to enjoy! Tickets are available for the Christmas Concert at the Victoria Centre on December 12th with entertainers Richard Bird and South Island Harmony. Call 250 388-4268 to reserve a seat.

Wonderful

I'm going to this!

Don't forget to fall back this weekend. It is also a good reminder to check the batteries in your fire alarms.
Be safe!

Even the rain yesterday couldn’t dampen the spirits of the out trippers who visited the Power to Be site at Prospect Lake. A nature walk that accommodated all levels of mobility followed by a camp fire and snack made for a lovely afternoon. Trips are being planned monthly from both our centres, and other outreach locations as part of our Senior Community Outreach Project in partnership with James Bay New Horizons. ... See MoreSee Less
