From the 2015 Calendar
December 2014 (Bonus Page)
Christina Bruce and Fairy Lagrada
If we are with people we are like a flower shop. A flower shop is beautiful and pretty.
“Tables and Chairs, Meat and Potatoes”
Emily Ostapovitch and Garth Protero
The painting is quite nice. It is a supper table with food on it. We are going to eat with Annette, Emily, and anyone else who is hungry. I love painting here.
“Apples with Hot Cakes”
Linda Staudacher and Betty Allen
Linda comes with me to church on Sunday mornings. She likes to tell me about her bowling activities on Saturday. She also tells me about the good breakfast she has on Sundays, especially when they have “Apple Creptes”. She tells me how they are made. So we decided together to paint our impression of apples and hot cakes.
Wayne Steifel, Ilonka Klein, Alex Richmond and Caroline Short
Two rainbow umbrellas on a stormy day, a rain forest. Two people dancing in the rain.
“With the Vine of Jesus”
Ryoko Mishima and Philip Beeby
I am the vine, and you are the branches. Whoever remains in me, and I in him, will bear much fruit, for you can do nothing without me, whoever does remain in me is thrown out like a branch and dries up. John 15:5-6
Annette Kuhn and Gwenda Dunlop
We wanted to paint a picture with bright, joyful colors, because Gwenda and I receive a lot of joy from being together. Gwenda loves to cut images from magazines. So we incorporated some of her clippings. Flowers express gratitude and the joy of life. In our painting they look l8ike they are dancing. The flowers on our painting are dancing “with joy”.
Arthur Hutchinson, Jane Suh and Fei Fei Peng
This mixed media piece was inspired by our love for the diversity we celebrate in our home. The words are Arthur’s reflection of what he loves about our home.
“Zumba with Us”
Sue Allen and Caroline Short
Zumba class; Theresa, Debbie and Sue teaching Zumba class
Theresa Meyers, Fairy Lagrada and Namakaya Siabaswi
Walking with everybody is good and fun. In this way we feel connected whether with shoes, flip-flops or bare feet.
“All in a Day’s Work”
Niall McNeil and Caroline Short
This painting shows that Neighbours Helping Neighbours works hard. We are a team of neighbours, Jackie is the leader. I love this program!
Theresa Meyers, Leonard Hiebert and Alex Richmond
This is a piainting of Leonard’s favorite stuffed animal. Big Rabbit goes everywhere with him. Theresa worked with Leonard, they are longtime friends.
“A Church, A Hall, and the White Spot”
Emily Ostapovitch and Guy Holland
These are three places that Guy likes to go to with different people. Go to Church every Sunday, go to the hall for AOTS and Social Tea and then go to the White Spot with a date.
“Fun with Family”
Melina Boote and Dianne Henderson Koci
We found a mug in the kitchen. It inspired us by its picture of dolphins playing with each other. It is happy and is full of action and the dolphins look very close, like a family.

“With the Promise”
Patrick Byron, Laurie Duke and Jenn Smith
We started with the rainbow and Patrick wanted to put a boat inside, as we painted it became Patrick in the boat, looking at God’s rainbow promise. Pat’s favorite part is the yellow – as we worked hard to blend these colors and make them feel like they are moving.
