Thank you to everyone who attended our 50th anniversary Garden Party on Saturday, Sept. 17th. We had it all - from fascinators to tea served in China cups, it was by all counts a wonderful success.
We would like to thank Gary Burrill, NDP Leader and Joachim Stroink, MLA Halifax-Chebucto for giving of their time, representatives from the Sisters of Charity, current and former members of the Board of Directors, staff, family members, volunteers and of course - the residents. Even the weather cooperated as it was a perfectly sunny day on which to hold an outdoor party in the garden by the gazebo, with piano music by Melanie Breen playing in the background.
The Help Saint Vincent's Grow - Buy a Bulb campaign was a success, with donors buying bulbs and shrubs, both of which will be planted in the gardens directly in front of the building.
A huge thank you goes out to all the staff who helped bring the residents outside so they could enjoy the festivities.
