David Palmer and Keshia Kersey who hosted the luncheon and tour of AMICA Riverside - welcoming comments.
OK, this was fun! And informative! (And I can't seem to be able to make a proper or complete sentence.)
Keshia Kersey, Community Relations Coordinator at AMICA Riverside, graciously hosted twenty WURA members (well, maybe it was nineteen members - I counted but forgot to remember the number) on April 30, 2019. We were treated to a light lunch; sandwiches, salads, fruit and cheese plates, coffee, tea prior to an all too short tour of their amazing facility. This place is a ten! We also encountered a couple UWindsor retirees who live there, by the way.
Many thanks to Keshia and her staff for a very pleasant and informative afternoon.
So here are some pictures, not presented in any order.

Vito Signorile - the moment one realizes that this is where Mackenzie Hall is. It's the library and meeting room on the nth floor. The view was incredible.
The kitchen where you can cook, and if you're like me, try to learn to cook. From left to right; Richard Householder, David Palmer, Lucy Kroeker, Lonnie Palmer, John McIntosh, Keshia Kersey and Veronika Mogyorody.

Haircut, pedicure and everything in between. This is the full service spa at AMICA Riverside. Complete top to bottom care.
Keshia answering questions near the end of the tour. She has cookies.
An example of a single bedroom suite. The decorator was not Marie Kondo. It's just been cleaned up and waiting for a new resident to move in.
Food! From left to right, Vito Signorile, Veronika Mogyorody, Martin Morf, Bernie Kroeker, and John McIntosh.
