It’s seniors helping seniors

Coldstream Meadows welcomes all to its fundraiser Sept. 22 to help displaced seniors in High River, Alta.

Seniors helping seniors is what the residents at Coldstream Meadows are hoping to do today.

Residents and staff are working together to raise funds for the seniors in High River, Alta. who have lost their homes and possessions in the recent floods.

The Coldstream Meadows community hopes to raise funds to supply some seniors with a tangible item replacing something valuable that was lost in the flood.

“We have seen pictures of a seniors’ residence, like ours, where the supper is still on the plates in the dining room yet the room is full of mud,” said resident Ellen Munday. “They have lost everything.”

To help, some suppliers, residents and staff have come together to organize a Show and Shine with Wine and Craft Sale.

Please join the seniors at Coldstream Meadows today from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. to taste wine from Arrowleaf Cellars in Lake Country and enjoy snacks and coffee donated by many of the residence’s suppliers. You will have the opportunity to purchase crafts made by residents and check out some amazing vintage cars.

“The seniors in High River are not in the news today but many are still homeless,” said Munday. “Our plan is to help our peers — seniors helping seniors.”
