On September 12th a dream came true! Margaret (Peggie) McDonald was so pleased and excited to be able to celebrate her 100th birthday!! She had been looking forward to celebrating this special occasion and often talked about it to staff and residents within the past several months. As her birthday drew near she had expressed concern that due to COVID-19 she would not be able to celebrate. Staff assured her that they would find a way to safely organize her party.
On that day, Peggie received many well-wishers! She received congratulatory plaques from the Prime Minister and the MPP’s from South Glengarry and Cornwall. Children, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, nieces and neighbours came by to congratulate her on reaching such a milestone. Peggie even had a Zoom meeting with a relative in Vancouver. All visitors were wonderful in respecting the regulations provided to ensure the safety and well-being of Peggie and all present.
