BOATS IN THE WATER
Yesterday was perfect weather for a road trip. Our man in Peterborough Lars and I started out at our Scarborough warehouse and headed west to Oakville to meet with Stephen Cull and Terry Bayley, the President and Executive Director, respectively, of Charterability (www.charterability.com). Here's a picture of (left to right) Terry, Stephen, John and Lars in front of a newly installed reBOOT Canada workstation, provided through our reSOURCE program.

SO ARE OUR CLIENTS...
“Through our partnership with the reCONNECT program, our Healthier Living Centre Department has been able to provide an open, accessible and welcoming learning environment for older adults. The reCONNECT program strengthened our capacity and effectiveness by providing us with hardware and support, which allowed us to focus on our programming and client experience. Our computer lab is open to older adults in our community five days a week from 9am-3pm and houses ten fully operational systems for use. Our qualified instructor and helpful volunteers provide instruction via multiple formats – to best serve clients old and new.”
Jeff Gruchy, Downsview Services To Seniors, Toronto
“Wonderful program. Residents are very happy with it. Good technical support [and] quick response time.”
Kamla Williams, Residence Castel Royal, Montreal
“We feel that the reCONNECT program has enriched the lives of our members. They're able to communicate with family on a new level. Family relationships are enhanced as members can easily contact grandchildren.”
Suzanne, York-West Active Living Centre, Toronto
“Good computers [and] excellent tech support. Very fortunate to have the program. We would not be able to afford computers. We just don’t have the budget for it.”
Gerry Lafferty, New Hope Senior Citizen Centre, Montreal
“Fantastic program. Very useful. We would not be able to afford computers for the seniors. Users are very happy with the new LCD monitors. Friendly tech support.”
Johanne Colarudo, Almage Senior Centre, Montreal, ON
