St. Joseph Parish of Port Moody has announced that its 22nd annual Easter Flowers distribution at Eagle Ridge Manor was another heart-warming success. The event saw 30 men, women, boys and girls from the parish volunteering to hand out flowering plants and hand-made greeting cards to residents of the long-term care facility. Organizer Terry O’Neill noted that he’s never had so many volunteers turn out for the event, which took place the morning of April 4.
“It’s very gratifying to see so much support for what’s become an Easter-weekend tradition,” O’Neill said. “It means so much to the patients to receive the flowers, the cards and, especially, the personal visits.” O’Neill also thanked Wim Vander Zalm of Art Knapp’s in Port Coquitlam for donating for daffodils.
