OSGOODE – The Township of Osgoode Care Centre held a special day on Sun., Sept. 8.
It held a Grandparents Day celebration to pay homage to the structure of the family in nurturing, upbringing and education of children.
The afternoon event featured a performance by master illusionist Chris Pilworth, and Vanderlaand The Barnyard Zoo. Also at the care centre was Fries for Charity.
The event featured a special moment from Cycle Without Age who unveiled the centre’s new Trishaw. Only six facilities in Eastern Ontario have a Trishaw. The vehicle allows someone to take two riders at a time and pedal around the Care Centre grounds giving residents an adventure in the fresh air.
The Trishaw was purchased with a $10,000 donation from members of Shroomfest.
Cycle Without Age was invented in Copenhagen and has spread to 42 countries.
