Cooking Demo at Terraces on 7th

Cruise Ships do it so why not us?
April 24th ~~ We enjoyed a Cooking Demo by our own Chef David.
Since Chef David had worked on a Cruise Ship and did many cooking demonstrations we always enjoy his professional presentations.
He gave me permission to take photographs and to use his Cheese Fondue recipe.

Following the demo was a lively question period with the audience that everyone enjoyed. Leaving all of us looking forward to the next promised demo.

Thank you Chef David Wilfred Hartley-Smith for an entertaining afternoon.

What makes Terraces on 7th So Nice to Come Home to?

I have been a resident for over 7 years and I can truly say Terraces on 7th is "So nice to come Home to!"
It is the people that make the difference. From management, staff and residents -- we all work together to make this our home and community.
On April 17, 2015 we had a special Appreciation Day where 46 people were nominated as an Everyday Hero who go out of their way to make life more meaningful and enjoyable for each one of us.
Each person was given a Certificate of Appreciation and a small gift from one of the family members. Each members family is made to feel welcome and included in everyone's life.

Lunch with a View

April 17 we had some excitement added to our panoramic view of Vancouver with the backdrop of mountains. It was during lunch time and we were lingering a little enjoying our coffee and dessert and suddenly people were pointing and chattering about what they were seeing about 1 block away.
I watched for a minute or two and then I left the 5th floor dining room to get my camera.
I got back in time for a few shots before it took a dive to the street below and out of sight.

Then the blimp took a nose dive down to the street.

It is Hard to say Good-bye, Jeri!

Our beloved General Manager, Jerilyn Lee, left Terraces to go to another GM position at another Seniors facility. As much as it saddens all of us to see her go, we do wish her every success and happiness in her new position.

Every resident at Terraces contributed notes to this scrapbook that expressed their mixed feeling about their overwhelming saddness to see her go and happiness for her new opportunity to pursue her dream.
