Apple Picking Recap

Events, Meals-on-Wheels, Seniors

On October 17th, a group of 60 Santropol Roulant community members (clients, volunteers, staff, donors and board members!) ages 8 months to 90+ years, went apple picking in Mont St-Grégoire. We dined on buckwheat crepes, toured the orchard by tractor, marvelled at the colourful leaves and picked a variety of apples.   To top things off, Pierre-Vincent and Mira-Clair treated us to a live performance on accordion and ukulele!

Brian, a client and friend of Santropol Roulant, had this to share: “Thank you so much for inviting me to the apple event… I was lucky to be with Roberto, Chris and Poppy. They were great company and also supplied me with food for the mind, which has a primary priority for me. Thank you so very much for a great day.”

A big heartfelt thank you to everyone who participated, but especially to our amazing drivers, without whom events like these wouldn’t be possible!  Enjoy the pics:
