Harmony Court Care June 2015 Recreation Calendar and Newsletter

Red Day May 14th 2015

They united in May to make our day…

Keller Williams Black Diamond Realty in Burnaby pooled their force of local realtors to bond together at Harmony Court Estate & Care Centre in mid-May for RED Day.

The Realtor firm’s annual RED Day is about giving back to the community.
(RED = “Renew, Energize and Donate”) and we were chosen as the recipients this year of their generosity.

With close to 35 people their crew got to work in the Magnolia and Rosewood Courtyards. Their work consisted of:

  • Re-potting existing plants
  • Potted new plants into purchased planters
  • Weeded garden areas in Magnolia & Rosewood courtyards
  • Tore down old wooden flower beds, spread the dirt out, laid down landscape fabric and covered area in new bark mulch
  • Washed skylight glass above the Care Centre and washed down the blue vinyl awning there
  • Sanded and painted flower bed attached to building and transplanted Herbs from old flower bed there
  • Removed old Christmas lights from the trees
  • Sanded and painted two benches and two communal tables
  • Dug space and placed cement tiles for new planters to sit on
  • Drained and cleaned existing water fountain
  • Trimmed hedges in both courtyards
  • Pulled three unwanted rose bushes
  • Tossed unwanted items that were in the courtyard area
  • Assembled new park bench and placed outside in entrance
  • Spread bark mulch in the courtyard and in the front garden area
  • Power washed the walkway in the magnolia courtyard

The Burnaby NewsLeader paper showed up to interview and take photos of the event.

Mario says that this will likely be in the next issue of their “As we age” feature.

We were blessed and fortunate to have as many hands as we did show up and appreciate Keller Williams for their generous contribution of time & energy.
