SAS Alumni International (SAS Ai) gives a warm shout-out to our fellow Augustinians living in Canada for their support and commitment to our mission of helping bright kids from poor families finish high school. Merry Christmas to you and yours. May the New Year bring you prosperity, happiness and good health.
We have members of SAS Batches 1980 and 1981 living in Canada who have generously given to the school fund. Thank you. So too with Batches 1958, 1959 and 1966. At the last grand reunion in 2012, we heard some folks have retired and others soon to be retiring. Most of them belong to the earlier batches who have recently celebrated their silver jubilees, or golden jubilees.
Funny how jubilee celebrations always bring out into the limelight (some though reluctantly) those among us who like to lie low in the grass. Perhaps because they are finally reaching retirement age, they have more time for leisure. Whereas before they were hustling, working two or three jobs to raise their families.
Listen. There’s talk on the grapevine about some very nice retirement living facilities there in Canada. Okay. Give me a break. Canada is big country. We know but hey, such as, there are places like Wallace Living, (http://wallaceliving.ca/) that offer assisted living for seniors, apartment living for folks looking for a place to rent, etc. Have you heard about them? That’s in Nova Scotia though. But more importantly, their company website is accessible and user-friendly so you can browse it at your own leisure. As a side note, we heard members of the Manzano family from Bangar just arrived and may need housing assistance. Let us know if you need some contact information. We can put you in touch with some of our fellow Augustinians living there, near the area.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
