It is with great sadness we mourn the passing of Bea Holland, who was Executive Director of Silver Threads Service during the 90's. Our organization exists today due to her leadership, compassion and dedication to seniors.
Bea leaves a lasting legacy to our community and we were blessed to have had her support over the decades.
Our deepest condolences to her family for your loss.
You will be greatly missed Bea. Rest in Peace.

A special thank you to Li Paper and members of the Chinese Women’s Friendship Association for hosting the Chinese Lunar New Year Tea at the Victoria Centre on Saturday. We learned a lot, enjoyed treats and prizes, some of us even tried dancing!
It was a delightful afternoon!
