SVCC patio complete
Residents of the Souris Valley Care Center are enjoying a new back patio this fall.
According to SVCC Resource Development Director, Emily Tescher-Johnston, funds raised at the 2010 SVCC Golf Tournament were dedicated to new patios at the Care Center. “We were fortunate to have a very successful golf tournament this year,” she says, “and now residents are reaping the benefits of that fundraiser.”
The new back patio is about double the size of the previous one. “Our old patio was too small and too rough,” says Tescher-Johnston. “The uneven surface was a concern because it made is hard for those in wheelchairs and walkers to get around outdoors,” she adds.
