New bus "hits the road" at Toronto home for the aged
  
After a year-long fundraising initiative, residents at Castleview Wychwood
Towers, Toronto Homes for the Aged, will finally "hit the road" in a newly
purchased bus. Corporations, community groups, family members, and the general
public all contributed to raise over $99,000 to buy the custom-equipped bus
that will accommodate 16 people, including four wheelchairs, that will help
connect residents to the rest of the city.

A special ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at Castleview Wychwood Towers
to pay tribute to all of the sponsors, staff and public who made the purchase
of the bus possible.

Date: Wednesday, August 14
Time: 2 p.m.
Location: Castleview Wychwood Towers 351 Christie St. (north of Dupont)

Castleview Wychwood has a long tradition of providing quality long-term care to
its residents, and the bus will be an important tool for helping residents
maintain connections with the community.
