Westhaven residents receive cheer, gifts from unlikely source at Christmas

Seasonal visitor returned to WCGH seniors’ home after COVID-19 break

Santa Claus—with his Port Alberni Kinsmen Club helper—stopped in at Westhaven senior’s care home on Christmas Day to bring some cheer to residents.

Kinsman Dan van Kley, Santa and Westhaven staff sang carols with residents and brought gifts too. The Kinsmen gave the residents three outdoor clay pots for plants in the residents’ garden, and gift cards for Quality Foods ($250), Pizza Hut ($250) and Canadian Tire ($150). Gifts were purchased with money raised from the annual Kinsmen Raffle.
