Dear Residents and Families,
As Remembrance Day approaches, we would like to take a moment to acknowledge and remember the sacrifices made by our veterans and members of the armed forces. Remembrance Day, observed on Nov 11, is a day to pay our respects to those who have served our country. In recognition of this important day, we have scheduled a day off for our administrative office on Monday, Nov 13, which will serve as a statutory holiday in lieu of Remembrance Day.
Office Closure Details:
- Date: Monday, Nov 13, 2023
- Reason: Statutory holiday in lieu of Remembrance Day
- Impact: The administrative office will be closed, and standard office operations will resume on Tuesday, Nov 14, 2023
While the administrative office will be closed on Nov 13, we understand that essential employees (Care Team/Food Service/Housekeeping) still need to work on that day due to the nature of their roles. Activities will be cancelled on Saturday, Nov 11 and Monday, Nov 13. In such cases, we encourage residents to communicate with department leaders for any questions.
On Nov 11, we encourage everyone to take a moment to remember and reflect on the significance of Remembrance Day. It is a time to honor our veterans’ and current military personnel’s courage, dedication, and sacrifices.
