Wheeling around

Robert Hyndman has started up a new transportation service for seniors in the east end, Wheels for Seniors, which offers drives to and from appointments and accompaniment if needed.

New beginnings

Program manager Nancy Darisse, executive director Matthew Beutel and board member Sally Arsove from the Lowertown Community Resource Centre show off the new sign at the front of its building on Dec. 8. The centre has undergone $200,000 in renovations, including purchasing new signs for the building.

Strong support

On Dec. 2 more than 600 people attended the 11th annual Snowflake Breakfast at the Centre Pauline-Charron from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. in support of the Vanier Community Service Centre’s Partage Vanier food bank. The event raised $60,000 for the more than 430 low-income families in Vanier each month.

Bank Street redesign coming

Residents listen as Emmett Proulx, a transportation planning designer with MMM Group, explains proposed plans to redesign Bank Street from Riverside Drive to Ledbury Avenue during a consultation meeting at the Jim Durrell Recreation Centre in Alta Vista on Dec. 6.
