Few things create Great Connections like sharing a little of who we are and where we come from. Cultural traditions are an important part of our lives, and sharing them with people we care about is often a fun and meaningful way to establish new connections and deepen existing ones.

Parkstone Enhanced Care’s Mount Lane neighbourhood is home to a large number of residents hailing from Newfoundland and Labrador. As a way of celebrating their roots and making sure everyone had a good time doing it, Mount Lane decided to host some “Newfie Day” festivities and give residents a chance to share their traditions and get a little taste of home. One Parkstone team member, Christine, took it upon herself to organize the event with singing, dancing and, of course, “kissing the cod”, a traditional rite of passage for visitors to the province. It sounds like Mount Lane has a few new honorary Newfoundlanders!
