Residents of Rotary Manor continue to enjoy Halloween traditions


Staff at Rotary manor
Staff at Rotary Manor in Dawson Creek got into the Halloween spirit.

In our second COVID-19 Halloween season, the residents of Rotary Manor in Dawson Creek enjoyed carving and decorating pumpkins, watching trick-or-treaters from the main window as they collected their candy, viewing the staff costume parade, and celebrating with live music – and of course, lots of chocolate! It’s important for the residents of Rotary Manor to be contributing members of the Dawson Creek community.

One of the ways the residents stay involved is the Manor tradition of handing out candy on October 31. Although the kids weren’t able to enter the building, we provided a safe way for them to come and see the residents and get their treats: chocolate bars were hung on a rope for the children to pull off and enjoy while the residents watched with enthusiasm as the trick-or-treaters paraded and waved to them. We’re grateful to Dawson Creek for their continued support of Rotary Manor and appreciate everyone who stopped by!
