Thank you very much for all the expressions of sympathy, support and encouragement received following my dad’s passing on June 11, 2017.  Your emails, cards, attendance at the funeral service, and other expressions of support were humbling, honouring, overwhelming and very much appreciated.  Special thanks to Pastor Kevin Klassen for his help with both the pre-recording and playing at the service of some special music.  Last week was definitely the most physically, mentally and emotionally draining week of my life.  Your support, thoughts and prayers definitely powered me through that week.  I wish many blessings and much love upon all of you. With very best regards, Norm Piel.

On behalf of the Meadowood Manor Foundation Board of Directors, a heartfelt thank you to those who graciously supported the Meadowood Manor Annual Fundraising dinner held on May 25. Together we raised $23,670.00; the proceeds will be designated 50% to the Chaplaincy and 50% to special projects.  These funds enhance the lives of Meadowood Manor’s residents, tenants, their families & friends, and staff.
