Wing Kei Care Centre gladly received the visit from Ms. Lu Xu, Consul General of People's Republic of China and Mr. Zhenting Gao, Deputy Consul General of People's Republic of China on March 2, 2018. We shared the mutual passion of serving the growing Chinese population in Calgary. Chinese New Year greetings were sent to seniors on all the floors. Lively conversations were shared between the visitors, residents and families. Residents were especially happy receiving mandarin oranges (meaning “gift of Gold” in Chinese) from our guests.
Blessed with sunshine and support from Wing Kei’s friends, family members and community members, a beautiful celebration of Greenview Phase 2 Roof Topping was held on Friday, February 23, 2018. This signifies another major milestone of Wing Kei’s growth. We are thankful to the very encouraging words from all, and will continue to share more details as the construction progresses.
Our annual Chinese New Year Banquet for Residents was held at Wing Kei Care Centre on February 17, and then at Greenview on February 24. Sounds of laughter, warm exchanges of New Year greetings and the excitement of welcoming the lion dances filled the hallways and banquet rooms. On February 24, all the seniors have a very joyful afternoon when Fairchild radio did a live broadcast at Greenview. There were games, sing-along, family member and resident sharing their experiences, and the highlight was a birthday celebration for a 101 year old birthday girl!
On February 22, 2018 Honorable Lori Sigurdson, Minister of Seniors and Housing and Mr. Craig Coolahan, MLA for Calgary – Klein, Mr. Jamie Kleinsteuber, MLA for Calgary - Northern Hills and Mr. Michael Connolly, MLA for Calgary – Hawkwood came to Greenview to send their Chinese New Year Greetings to our seniors. With Wing Kei’s commitment and exemplary standards in senior care, we have great support and trust from the Government. February 22 also happened to be the “universal birthday” in the lunar calendar, and a huge birthday cake was brought in to be shared by all!
