Residents and team members at Waterloo Heights rang in 2022 on a festive note during the afternoon of Dec. 31 with a special lunch, live entertainment and party favours for everyone.

For the “Noon Year’s Eve” celebration, the kitchen team prepared Chinese food for lunch that included fried rice, sweet-and-sour chicken balls, ribs and stir-fried vegetables, along with fruitcake for dessert.

Live music was provided courtesy of performer Michael Kelly Cavan, and residents were treated to champagne and sparkling wine to toast the coming of 2022.

Of course, no new year’s celebration would be complete without fancy dress, so residents and team members were encouraged to dress up for the occasion with sparkly top hats, new year’s crowns, necklaces, pandemic-safe noisemakers and comical new year’s eyeglasses.

Team members decorated the dining room to give it the festive look everyone wanted for the occasion.

Because 2021 was a challenging year for everyone due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Waterloo Heights activity director Jacqui Reid says the celebration to welcome 2022 was much needed by residents and team members.

“After having a few formal events this winter, it was nice to let loose with the fun new year’s-themed costume items,” she says.

 “We rang in 2022 with a positive attitude and hopes for a safe and fun new year.”
