Chateau Victoria donates to Victoria Cool Aid Society

Posted in By mark

One of the benefits of renovating hotel bedrooms is that furniture and bedding is changed well before it’s useful life is finished.   For our team at the hotel, this is nothing better than to feel we are helping our community with something as much needed as fresh beds for those in need.  It is surprising to know that in a city as fortunate as ours, we still have people who do not have a bed to sleep on.  That is why we are donating 20 complete sets including frames, box springs mattresses, all the sheets, duvets, pillows and shams.  James Slack, Senior Resident Support Worker expressed his gratitude to hotel employees stating the completed bedding is so hard to build from the supplies they have so when it comes to them in this complete package, it means people will get a good nights sleep that much sooner.

Lest We Forget

Posted in By marionann

by John McCrae, May 1915

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
