What's Upcoming! August 2013

So the saying goes, "Make hay whilst the sun shines"...well we don't know much about haymaking at Cavell Gardens  but we do know about getting our resident's out into the fresh air to enjoy this incredibly generous summer weather.

August has a full calendar with some of the attractions being VanDusen Botanical Gardens for a cart trip on Tuesday 13th; a Walk and Lunch at Lynn Canyon (North Vancouver) ; Lunch at the Sockeye City Grill in Steveston on Wednesday 21st; A Bag Lunch Picnic at Jericho Beach on Tuesday 27th followed by the Cavell Gardens walking Club stretching their legs at Kits Beach on Friday 30th.

In-house summer attractions  hit off on Thursday 15th with an Ice-Cream Social in our Courtyard Garden. For the cost of a 'toonie' our residents and their guests can have their fill of ice-cream with a combination of numerous delicious toppings, and/or enjoy an ice-cream float whilst mingling with friends.

On Tuesday 20th we've planned a Greek BBQ Lunch  with afternoon entertainment by 'Slava'
and we end August with our Month End and Birthday Celebration on Friday 30th with entertainment by a favourite of ours 'Dale & the Tunemakers"

All this and all the usual activities, clubs and wellness programs makes for a terrific month ahead.

Did you know that Cavell Gardens has incredible views. Our residents were able to enjoy all 3 the Celebration of Light firework shows from the comfort of their own home! Congratulations Canada on your win!

Ambleside Picnic July 2013 - A truely enjoyable day!

July 16th couldn't have been more perfect for our picnic outing to Ambleside Park in West Vancouver; the sun shone, the sea sparkled and everyone who was part of the day enjoyed themselves thoroughly.

Some of our more energetic participants took advantage of the sea wall for a few circuits; whilst others opted for the more sedate; with a deck chair on the beach and toes in the sand.

Our cooks did us proud, providing the picnickers with a poached salmon lunch and a salmon burger BBQ for those who remained at Cavell Gardens. A picture paints a thousand words so herewith some photographs for you to enjoy!
