Another Christmas Season of family, good friends and delicious treats. As always (for 20 years) Roger McKie of Dressew Supplies provided each resident with a personalized gift to open on that special morning. Thank you to the many guests who visited our home in December and to the staff who helped share the joy of the festivities with everyone.
We are pleased to share a poem written by Marlene, Recreation Therapist, which was read by Michael, a volunteer, at our Christmas Family and Friends night:
Another party and another year
So break out the egg nog and be of good cheer
Come in from outside and come down from your floor
Let’s celebrate Christmas together once more.
Joyeux Noel and Feliz Navidad
May our time here together leave your heart feeling glad
There’ll be singing and snacking and drinks from the bar
but not very many or you can’t drive your car.
So cast off your worries and wipe off your gloom
Embrace all friendships you find in this room
Sing the old carols with all of your might
It’s okay if you don’t get the words out just right
This Christmas we hope that you don’t feel alone
That Yaletown House is also Yaletown Home
We are glad you are here, each and every one
So let’s start this party and have us some fun.
Merry Christmas Everyone!!!
