Saturday December 5th – We joined up with Virgin Radio this Christmas, each of our Residents received a Christmas Card from members of the Winnipeg Community. We have also had several other schools request to do the same thing, our Residents will be receiving lots of warm greetings this year!
Monday December 7th – We had a very Special Guest visit Luther Home, who could it be???? It was no one other than Jolly Old St. Nick himself (aka Tom our HCA) The Residents had fun talking with him and loved having a picture with Santa just like they did when they were young.
Tuesday December 15 – Students of Ecole Belmont and 20 of our Residents from Luther Home have become Pen Pals, we have started to write letters to the Students and are very excited to receive letters in return.
Tuesday December 15 and Wednesday December 16 – Students and Teachers from Forest Park Elementary came and participated in a Parade around Luther Home waving to our Residents and Staff and holding up laminated signs that we now have hung around our home.
December 17th – Christmas Wish List! Recreation was contacted by the 7 Oaks MET School, they asked if they could adopt our Residents for Christmas. The Recreation Team of Elves got busy asking Residents what they would like for Christmas, within one week each and every one of our Residents was adopted. They had to borrow Santa’s sleigh to fit all the gifts they had, If this isn’t the real meaning of Christmas I do not know what is!!!
