Sunbeam Virtual 65th Anniversary Celebration

It’s been an amazing 65-year journey since Pieter and Johanna Vos welcomed their first child with developmental disabilities into their home. Fast forward to today where through their efforts, Sunbeam now has helped more than 14,000 individuals and their families.

Merrilee FullertonWith the help of our dedicated staff, we were able to put together an amazing virtual event that showcased both staff and persons served through our Sunbeam community. Both Merrilee Fullerton (Minister of Children, Community and Social Services) as well as Bardish Chaggar (MP) were able to express their gratitude for Sunbeam’s dedication to the people we serve in the community and for many more in the years to come.

Both Sunbeam staff as well as other members of the public were invited to attend the celebration which showcased musical performances from our very own Kevin and Linda Creighton who did a duet of Elvis’s Love Me Tender. The theme of the event was clear from both resident and staff testimonials. It was about caring, love and supporting those we serve.

Our passionate staff make a world of difference those they work with on a daily basis, and we couldn’t be more proud of them. Thank you for all your hard work and making Sunbeam what it is today. Johanna and Pieter Vos would be proud!
