Posted on October 27, 2017 in Tudor Manor News
On October 27, Tudor Manor celebrated its 5th Anniversary with a traditional High Tea party. Residents and families were treated like royalty as they enjoyed traditional English treats and tea served in fine china teacups! Special guests took part in the celebration including The Mayor of Okotoks, Bill Robertson, and The Brenda Strafford Foundation's Executive Team.
Since opening its doors to welcome its first residents on October 22, 2012, Tudor Manor has become a valued part of the Okotoks community and The Brenda Strafford Foundation. Some highlights from the first 5 years at Tudor Manor include:
- Tudor Manor celebrated its Official Opening on June 18, 2013. The Honourable Fred Horne, Minister of Health, and the Honourable George Vanderburg, Associate Minister of Seniors and Housing, along with other dignitaries and special community guests were in attendance for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony.
- Tudor Manor Build-a-Bus Campaign that raised over $100,000 towards the purchase of a new wheel chair accessible bus that was purchased in June 2016.
- Launch of the Dementia Friendly Communities initiative in Okotoks supported by Tudor Manor, with provincial funding support from Alberta Seniors and Housing, Alberta Health Services, and Alberta innovates, and strong support from the community.
Congratulations Tudor Manor - The Foundation looks forward to celebrating many more successes and milestones with you in the years to come!
