As hard as it is to believe, but the seasonal holidays are coming at us with increasing speed! Thanksgiving is less than a month away and folks are already planning for their family dinners and visits (not to mention that Farmer Brown’s turkeys are all wishing that they were cows or pigs!).
If Residents and/or their families/friends wish to book the Recreation room* or our “Tea Room” for a private function, we will always do our best to accommodate the request. However, because The Home is on the “cozy-size”, we are unable to reserve or guarantee space, particularly during the very busy upcoming holiday season, and even more specifically on the Thanksgiving weekend (October 7-9 inclusive), Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day. (*Scheduled Resident group programs/activities requiring use of the Recreation room always take precedence over individual bookings.)
As a general “FYI” for non-holiday seasonal bookings – should you wish to reserve the Recreation room, please contact our Recreation staff either by phone at (204) 453-4663 ext. 209 (voice mail available), or by email at . Should you wish to book our main floor “Tea Room”, please call any of our Kitchen staff at (204) 453-4663 ext. 208.
Reminder: If favorite foods/beverages are brought in by family/friends, please serve only within your family/circle of friends and not with other Residents. Many of our Residents have dietary restrictions, swallowing concerns, and/or may be unable to disclose food-related allergies, etc. to you. We do not wish a well-intentioned sharing of a tasty treat to end up the cause of a very upset tummy or choking incident. As well, liquor cannot be served in The Home, as we do not hold a Liquor License.
May I/we be the first to wish you Happy Holidays! 🎅
