Square Dancing Dreams Come True

Southampton Care Centre Grants Resident Wish Through "Better Late Than Never" Program!

Southampton Care Centre - Southampton, ON.

Swing your partner! Bow to your Corner! Promenade! Southampton Care Centre had an absolute blast making another Resident wish come true through the organization-wide "Better Late Than Never" Program, which seeks to identify and fulfill the unique goals and wishes of the Residents living in our Retirement Lodges and Long Term Care Homes across Ontario. Southampton's Bea Schultz has been eager to return to her square dancing days and frequently tells the Southampton Team just how much fun the experience is. To grant Bea her wish, the Team came together to plan an authentic square dancing shindig at the Home. In the weeks leading up to the event, Bea and her peers watched square dance videos and learned that other Residents within the Home had previously been involved in square dancing groups that traveled to other countries to perform! Bea was surprised and delighted as the day finally arrived and Staff assisted her into a traditional square dance costume generously provided by the Owen Sound Steppers Square Dance Club. Wearing her finest attire, Bea hit the dance floor and celebrated her square dance heritage in style. To cap off the experience, Bea was presented with a commemorative plaque to remember the wonderful event. A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who brought this dream to life for Bea! We know she won't soon forget it!
