Happy Birthday to Us!
Forty-five years ago yesterday, Dundas Manor opened its doors. The Manor was established, owned, and operated by the Alguire family for more than 32 years. In a special section of the paper, the Winchester Press reported that the new home “will bring the county to the forefront in nursing care for the elderly”, noting that “the $1 million complex offers the best in patient care, with ultra-modern kitchen and laundry facilities, and spacious living, activities and craft rooms”.
The official opening ceremony was held on June 23rd (so the weather was nicer!). Osie Villeneuve, MPP for Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, led the official party, along with the Hon. Douglas Wiseman and dignitaries from the Ontario Nursing Home Association, Winchester Chamber of Commerce, and others. Public tours were also held.
“It must have been an exciting day in Winchester!” notes Administrator Susan Poirier. “Every day since, we’ve worked hard to make each day special at Dundas Manor, inspiring happiness and joy for our residents. Now, we can’t wait to share the news of the official opening of the new Dundas Manor! We are getting closer with the start of construction this fall. What a great way to celebrate our birthday!”
Join us for our 45th birthday celebration on July 12th.
