To Wendy Warshawski and all her helpers I want to send a sincere thank you for the Christmas Day luncheon for people who would otherwise be alone.
It was the fifth year that I was part of the festivities, food and fun. Joy is the word that best describes my feeling.
A gentleman drove me from my home to the Mary Winspear Centre. I was greeted with warmth and welcoming smiles and hugs from people at the door. Folks recognized me from previous years and from the community. I sat with several strangers but we were soon acquainted. I didn’t see a single frown – just smiles, laughter and love. The food was delicious. I enjoyed the music, Santa Claus, the decorations and a cuddly teddy bear.
Many thanks to all those involved in giving this precious Christmas gift. It made the celebration very special for me and for many others.
