Nelson’s Jubilee Manor pleased with impressive new wheels

Earlier this month, the Nelson Jubilee Manor/Place Foundation presented a new bus to residents and staff of the Rosemont facility.

Earlier this month, the Nelson Jubilee Manor/Place Foundation presented a new bus to residents and staff of the Rosemont facility. This project to replace the existing bus has been ongoing for several years.

In an effort to raise money for the bus, the Foundation has had great support from the following organizations, plus many other generous individual donors: Friends of Nelson Elders in Care, Nelson Gyro Club, Nelson Lions Club, Kokanee Chapter of the IODE, Kootenay Country Store Co-op, Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie 22, Regional District of Central Kootenay, L.V. Rogers Grad Classes of 60/61/62.

They would also like to thank their auxiliary for the ponchos the residents are wearing in the picture. These ponchos will come in very handy for the outings on the new bus.

The Nelson Jubilee Manor/Place Foundation greatly appreciates the continued support from the community.
