WALK FOR MEMORIES 2014

Our Walk for Memories planning began with the St. Anne Centre Support Group answering the call from the Alzheimer Society.  The goal was to raise approximately $2500. The dedication and hard work of this group and St. Anne Centre staff helped realize over $9500. in donations. The walk took place on July 26th on a beautiful sunny day. Both family members, friends and residents took part.  Here are a few pictures that will indicate what a celebration it was.


The group of walkers and the residents left the Centre at 1:15.
