15 Years Happier Here™
Published on July 26, 2023
Last month, celebrations were in full swing at Waterside – A V!VA Retirement Community to recognize its 15-year milestone of Happier Here™ retirement living. Surrounded by beautiful decorations in the Victory Garden, guests enjoyed a wonderful selection of festive food, drinks and desserts prepared by Chef Bruce and the Culinary Team. Speeches from Carleton Place’s Mayor, Toby Randell, long time Waterside Services Manager, Richard Stansel, and V!VA Home Office executives added to the importance of the event. Particularly delightful, was Community Member, Mary Woods’ reflection on the joy she has experienced in her move to Waterside. Everyone enjoyed the live musical performances including from Waterside’s Community Director, Rik Luneburg, on his guitar. The day was filled with joyous spirits for all old friends and new alike, recognizing that it is people – Community Members, Team Members, family and friends – who make life truly Happier Here™ at Waterside . Our anniversary celebration will continue throughout the year not only to commemorate this momentous milestone but also to serve as inspiration for the next 15 years to come.
