Mississauga (August 9th, 2018) – As Governance Committee Chair and CEO, Peel Senior Link; along with Keith Ward, Board Member of Wisma Mega Indah; and Gail Williams, Housing Programs Specialist with Housing Programs, Region of Peel, we are delighted to report that on August 9th, 2018 the first Creditvale Mills BBQ Event and Open House took place bringing together more than 200 attendees for an evening of fun, food and information. Tenants in the family and senior buildings made up the largest segment of the turnout, and around 13% of attendees came from the surrounding community. The goal of this event was to foster community engagement, provide our tenants with information about programs and services that will be accessible through the Community Wellness Hub and provide a space for meaningful interaction among our tenants from both the senior and family buildings. The event was supported by 27 fantastic volunteers, primarily with the Boys & Girls Club’s Youth Leadership Group. Our seniors and youth worked together contributing to an enjoyable evening. Region of Peel staff supported the event along with 9 community organizations (7 of which serve as partners on the Community Wellness Hub planning committee). In attendance was Councillor Ron Starr, City of Mississauga who mingled with the youth, seniors, and volunteers. We wish to acknowledge the leadership provided by Sheena Moya Chen, Resident Support Coordinator, Creditvale Mills Family & Senior Residence, Wisma Mega Indah Inc., for making this a highly successful event for all who attended. Many thanks to our numerous partners, volunteers, and donors.
