Getting to the ‘heart’ of a decorative Christmas

December 3rd, 2018

Residents have been busy putting their own stamp on Christmas at Points West Living Slave Lake. A few weeks ago, they decided that PWL Slave Lake was missing ‘decorations from the heart’. So, they planned to change that, starting with the Christmas tree at the front entrance.

Decorations from the heart

Their first Christmas decoration work bee was on November 20, with residents painting individual tree ornaments. “They made their ornaments with love and laughter,” says General Manager Marilyn Badduik, “and they were quite happy to hang their ornaments on the tree."

"Over the coming weeks, we have plans to make many decorations, both for the tree and for the cottages.”
