We Are So Thankful for You!
We are so thankful for the families and friends who unfailingly come to visit the veterans and seniors here at the Lodge at Broadmead. It is your unwavering support for your loved ones that gives them strength and enables us to do what we need to do to provide them exceptional care. We are asking you to once again, Thank a Veteran Oct. 13 through Remembrance Day. You can pick up a free thank you card at any Greater Victoria Thrifty Foods and write your words of thanks to the veterans here at the Lodge. We will post the notes of thanks on Remembrance Day so that the messages can be read by everyone. Feel free to come by the Broadmead Lodge reception desk to pick up a thank you card and write your own words of thanks to the men and women who so bravely fought for our country. Thank you to our sponsors Thrifty Foods, CTV Vancouver Island, CFAX 1070 and the Times Colonist.
