“I used to harvest turnips right here at the front door of Ritz Lutheran Villa. It feels good to be home and I hope to be able to live in West Perth Village one day if I'm unable to care for myself”

- Watson Adams

Events & Donors

Gerald and Jean Beuermann recently celebrated Gerald’s 91st birthday with a cheque presentation to the WPV project for $35,000.  Gerald indicates ‘that this is the best birthday present we could ever hope to give our community! and I really wanted to surprise our family and friends by doing this at my birthday party!’
Paul Van Gerwen of Sunlife Financial, pictured here with RLV Board Chair, Betty Duwyn recently donated $10,000 to the West Perth Village project. Paul says ‘There are probably others like me who were directly or indirectly involved with the initial project and have been reluctant to come forward with donations. I am confident in this board’s ability to see this much needed community development through to completion.
Hopefully, this small donation will help put it one step closer to the finish line.”
Carrie and Jason Uniac are pictured here making a cheque presentation to Board Chair, Betty Duwyn.  ‘Our mom, Dorothy, was a nurse for many years at the Mitchell Medical Centre.  So we are honoured to make this donation in memory of her name and her service to our community.’
Frank & Elaine VanHevel stopped by last week for a visit to Ritz Lutheran Villa where they surprised Administrator, Jeff Renaud with a terrific $10,000 donation.  Frank says ‘We farmed our whole lives in the Mitchell area, so it only made sense that we make this contribution back to our community.’
