Thanks to a generous grant, our residents will be enjoying a day trip to Ottawa and the Parliament Buildings in May, during the Ottawa’s tulip Festival. The Foundation of Greater Montreal selected L’Abri en Ville to receive $2,500 from the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th Anniversary. In our application sent last October, we proposed a bus trip to Canada’s capital to be part of the celebrations of Canada’s Birthday by exploring its history and culture.
About 35 residents and staff will board a bus leaving at 8 a.m., arriving in time for a guided tour of Parliament Hill. After a lunch we plan to visit the city’s tulip-bedecked park lands before returning home. What a fabulous way to celebrate Canada’s birthday.
Many thanks to the Foundation of Greater Montreal
