At the awards ceremony Lewisporte District MHA Wade Verge showed up to give the residents their medals.

It was real special being there at Bayside Manor, said Mr. Verge. Seniors and children have a way of making us appreciate life a little more.

The games and activities they play all have an integral role in the well being of the residents. The games keep them active and mobile but it also helps them develop social skills and friends.

After so long when the residents are taking part in the activities they all become friends, said Ms. Cole. Then they visit each other and keep each other company. We really do have to make it special for them.
