The Lloydminster Concerned Citizens for Seniors Care Society is throwing a special lunch party at the Legacy Centre.

A Seniors Healthcare Workers Appreciation Day will take place on March 23 with speeches, certificates, sponsor tokens of appreciation and plenty of good food to boot.

“We want to honour the staff in all of the facilities that deal with seniors in Lloydminster,” said senior Ruby Trudel, who came up with the idea.

“We want to publicly say ‘thank you’ to them for the wonderful care they give and the exceptional circumstances they’ve worked under for the last two years.”

Invitations have been sent to managers at Jubilee Home, Pioneer House and Lodge, Lloydminster Continuing Care Centre, Dr. James Hemstock and Hearthstone Place, Points West Living and the Dr. Cooke Extended Centre.

“We have also invited Home Care because they visit with seniors living in their own homes,” said Trudel.

The list of invited guests includes several surprise dignitaries who will have a role in the presentations including tangible swag for facility managers to present to their employees.

“We’re going to have a wonderful lunch put on by the Legacy Centre,” said Trudel.

“We’re going to give the staff of these facilities a chance to participate in something that’s just totally positive. It’s just going to be a very positive and hopefully, an uplifting time for them.”

The lunch is a no-host affair, so anyone who attends will pay $12 for their own meal, except for the invited guests who are covered by the Seniors Care Society.

Anyone from the public who wants to have a meal is asked to phone Trudel at 639-840-0828 by noon on March 18.

“Please don’t just show up, it’s RSVP, so the Legacy Centre knows how many people they have to cook for,” said Trudel.
