Athens Creek New Year’s Eve Party a
‘parfait’ sendoff to 2018

January 4th, 2019

In a sweet afternoon of song and bubbly, residents and a few care partners celebrated 2018 and welcomed 2019 at Points West Living Athens Creek in Penticton. Local performer Gillian Russell played her guitar and sang some old favourites, including one surprise number…

Happy Birthday to Tammy

It was care partner Tammy’s birthday, and when she joined the group, Gillian led everyone in a spontaneous round of Happy Birthday. Tammy’s daughter Katchina, who is also a care partner at Athens Creek came in on her day off to help out with the singing and the celebration.


“We were treated to a special New Year’s parfait that was made in-house just for the occasion,” says recreation coordinator Ellie Bertrand, “along with bubbly, punch and eggnog. The party was loud and joyous as everyone sang along with Gillian.”
