LMHC Board Member Sue Clifford (red jacket) celebrates with her little team of tree planters.

On Saturday, May 23/ 2015, several Tenants of the Southdale Community along with some LMHC Staff, Board Members and Laurier Students joined forces with Staff from ReForest London to beautify a small area of LMHC’s Southdale Community.

A small oasis of stone, shrubs and trees was completed to create a peaceful area for Tenants to relax and enjoy some nature. The event included face painting, bubbles and a fish pond for the little ones and was wrapped up with a hot dog BBQ for all to enjoy.

To all who participated during the middle of this beautiful Saturday afternoon and donated their time and/or materials, I would like to offer my personal thanks for your work in helping our community. I enjoyed the workout myself and was very happy to participate.

Steven J. Matthew
Chief Executive Officer
