You May have not met Rudy yet, as he is one of our newer Residents, but you should seek him out! Rudy is so happy living here at Rideau, so much, that he volunteered at our Recent Open House to welcome prospective residents and their families as they came in to tour and take part in the festivities.
He wanted to share his story of coming to Rideau and how helpful the staff are and how wonderful the food and services are here at Rideau. We nominated him to be our Resident Ambassador, an honor he hods in high regard. As a Veteran, Rudy takes his duties seriously and will also be taking in our upcoming Remembrance Day Ceremony as an honored guest.
If you spot Rudy around, say hello and get to know him! He has lots of great stories and loves helping his fellow residents!
A donation drive at Holy Cross Elementary School in Burnaby turned out to be a success as 67 bicycles – including 27 bikes for kids – were given away May 4.
According to organizer Graham Darling, those sets of wheels will be given away to people in the community with low incomes looking for an inexpensive way to travel.
“This is currently the only event of its kind in the Greater Vancouver area,” said Darling.
The Knights of Columbus offered the event in partnership with various organizations including the PEDAL Society. People were also welcome to bring in their current bikes for a free tune-up.
When a huge, superhero-themed festival hit the streets of Burnaby in June, members of Holy Cross Parish saw an opportunity to evangelize.
They joined the parade with a float featuring a cross crowned with thorns, wearing a red cape and labelled “HERO.” They also carried banners of the Knights of Columbus and symbols of the various activities and charitable works the parish offers.
Parade organizers estimated a total of 50,000 people participated in the festival.
