Because you care, a Trishaw Story.

When you donate, it has an amazing impact on the lives of our friends, family and neighbors who rely on Loch Lomond Villa. Meet a resident, family member, volunteer and staff who have benefited from your generosity.

It was one of those spring days that we cross our fingers for all winter long. When the sun breaks free from its prison of fog and shines down on every inch of the city. Heidi Hooten-Garland decided to take full advantage of Mother Nature’s lenience and take her mother, a resident of Loch Lomond Villa, out on the Cycling without Age trishaw.

For Doreen the 1920’s were an unpredictable time. Many families in the Saint John community walked a tightrope between financial struggle and success. Doreen was born on October 4th, 1926 to Viola and Frank Henry Arthurs. While growing up Doreen watched a lot of families struggle. Her mother and father faced their own challenges. Yet, they were fortunate to own “Quality Packing Company”, a local grocery store located at 523 Main Street North. The store ensured that their family never went hungry. As a girl Doreen watched her mother and father work as a team to build their success. They supported one another and weren’t afraid to get their hands dirty!
