Photo Opportunity: Toronto Homes for the Aged Volunteers take a bow
  
On Monday, April 15, 2002 at 2 p.m. at Toronto City Hall, Councillor Brad
Duguid (Chair, Community Services Committee) and Councillor Anne Johnston
(Toronto's Seniors' Advocate) will join in the celebrations to honour
volunteers from Toronto's ten Homes for the Aged. Award-winning volunteers each
have made special contributions to ensure that each home is a "portrait in
caring".

The celebrations will also include a display in the City Hall Rotunda that
highlights the many activities that make volunteers such an important part of
the Homes for the Aged team.

In 2001, over 1,600 people volunteered more than 152,000 hours in Toronto's
Homes for the Aged. Their contributions included escorting residents on trips,
running special events, working in tuck shops, visiting one-on-one with
residents, and many other activities that help remind residents that they are
part of a community that cares.

Date: Monday, April 15, 2002

Time: 2 p.m.

Location: Council Members Lounge
City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.
