Hands on Exotics 2017
What a wild and fun time we had with Hands on Exotics! For the hour we had a baby kangaroo bouncing around the room, Netherland Dwarf rabbits hopping here and there, parrots squawking and singing, and so much more. We couldn't help but feel like we were in a warm, exotic place.

Yesterday the leadership team surprised our employees with a giant ice-cream bar, to show our appreciation for all the hard work they do. Recent family and resident survey results indicate Christie Gardens rates high on generosity, optimism, and trust. Thanks to our valuable employees, Christie is most definitely a community you can have faith in!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us to all of you.
Thank you Humewood Community School for coming to perform at our residence today. You sounded fantastic!

Our Amnesty Letter-Writing Group held a Write for Rights event on December 10th, International Human Rights Day. Altogether, 75 letters were written and dozens of signatures added to petitions and postcards in support of people around the world whose human rights are being denied.
Lest we forget.
