Just before 2023 rolled in, Points West Living Stettler hosted “A Year to Remember” Eden Celebration event.

Leading up to the day, residents received ticket invitations asking them to ‘dress to impress’. 

As they arrived for the ‘movie premier’ style event, the surprised residents were greeted by a red carpet, balloon archway, and stars decorating the ceiling as they gathered for the celebration. To symbolize how important each one is to the PWL Stettler community, every resident’s name was written on the decorative stars above their heads.
