A New Year
What will 2023 hold? We have had many enquiries so far as people look forward, and begin researching for the next chapter in their lives! Both RiverBend and Mayfair are wonderful communities and we warmly welcome your visits and phone-calls, always glad to hear from you!
As we move into December, and how can it be winter already, we look forward to a new Rec calendar and a new Winter Menu starting soon. We so appreciate the classy Christmas decorations throughout the buildings! Each floor at Mayfair is so beautiful in every direction – be sure to check them out!
The Christmas Bazaar, Bake Sale and Art Show November 27 was so fun! We had great turnout and I think every vendor, volunteer and shopper can’t help but be in the spirit of Christmas! There are many talented artists, makers and bakers in our community.
As well, there was much laughter and conversation at the special French Toast Breakfast this morning. Thanks to our Food Services Manager, Chris!
All the best to all as life continues on.
The weather is beautiful as we have transitioned into fall! Be sure to check out the gorgeous gardens, trees and flowers before the first frost arrives. A big thank you to those who have weeded, dead-headed, etc, etc!
As well, check out the Monthly Calendar as there are always nice things planned for our residents.
Hello! We hope everyone is having a great summer! Stay safe in this Kamloops heat wave.
Our calendar is still full with lots to do at both Mayfair and RiverBend, thanks to our Rec Department, Ann and Amanda. There are two calendars, specific to each building, but residents from each are welcome to attend events at the other now.
Also, be sure to check out the lovely plants and flowers around both buildings. Thanks to our residents for donations early this spring for bedding plants, thanks to those who have signed up at Mayfair to do weeding! What a great community!!
