Playing it forward; one piano donation triggers
a triad of musical gifts

This is a story of three pianos, two loved and well played, and a third, brand new and untested. Each of the pianos now has a happy home, and one of those homes is Points West Living Stettler. It all started with the donation of a new, Roland electronic piano to the Long Term Care center at Stettler Hospital.

Scones, fine china, and fascinators bring
regal flair to royal wedding watchers

Some residents at Points West Living Stettler were so excited about `the royal wedding’ they were almost ready to get up at 3-AM on May 19th, to watch Meghan and Harry tie the knot live on television. Most others were happy to watch a video recording of the proceedings the next day, after a good night’s sleep. The dedicated royalists decided to join them and they made an event of it.

Donated box of vintage records results in flood
of fond musical memories

One day last fall, someone dropped off a box of old vinyl records to Points West Living Stettler. Since there was no on-site record player (who needs one these days, right?), recreation coordinator Jenn Dixon started checking out units in antique stores. To her delight, she found one where she least expected it, and since then residents have been enjoying leisurely journeys back in musical time.
