Children Supporting Indoor Playground Recently, 5 year old Olivia Kennedy, granddaughter of our Administrative Assistant, Betty, invited ten of her friends to Kings Way Care Centre for a “tea” party. As part of our - Moments of Joy Campaign, we are fundraising for an indoor playground. This playground will be constructed to bring children and seniors together to share smiles, conversation and laughter. It will make a child’s visit natural and fun for all. As an added surprise, Cinderella (Party Princess by Mandi) made a special appearance with her friend, Belle, to share in the fun. If you or your child would like to host a “Ten for Tea” party, please contact the Foundation office at 847-1131 ext. 1124.

Easter Bonnet Parade An Easter Bonnet Parade was held at Kennebec Manor in April with residents from Kennebec Manor, Kings Way Care Centre, St. John & St. Stephen and the Turnbull Home. The residents were all decked out with creations that they had made, anything from ribbons and bows to bunny and eggs. Everyone had a fun time!

The Kings Way Care Centre residents had a busy month between welcoming a new bunny (Lily), having some baby chicks visit, getting plenty of exercise, enjoying a marionette show and being entertained by the Men of Fundy.

Raising Funds for Our Bunnies We would like to give a big thank you to a young entrepreneur, Grace Thompson, who with the help of her mother, one of our LPNs, Lori Thompson made Easter cupcakes and treat bags to raise funds for supplies for our bunnies. Grace set up a table with her wares in the Quispamsis neighborhood and had no problem selling treats. Who could resist those cute bunny ears and beautiful smile!!
