Premier Redford and Health Minister Horne Visit Evacuation Centre, Shawnessy YMCA

Shawnessy YMCA and the South Fish Creek Recreation Centre was visited by Premier Alison Redford and Health Minister Fred Horne this morning. The facility is being used as an evacuation centre for prearranged seniors who have been evacuated from their nursing homes. Thank you Premier Alison Redford and Minister Fred Horne for taking the time to come visit us and our guests.

We are so encouraged by the strength and compassion of our city. Numerous offers have been made by the public to support us and our evacuees to lend a hand, with donations, to offer entertainment and to provide encouraging words.  We have all the help we need (supplies, bodies, etc) on hand. It is amazing to see people who have been affected by the current situation still come forward to lend a helping hand. THANK YOU!
