A Neighbour I Appreciate

Do you dread when someone new moves in close to you?

Living in an apartment building can be fascinating, wondering who is coming and going and is that neighbour going to be noisy or nosey? Now, thinking outside of the community living experience, think of the larger community presence. As in WHAT is going up on that empty lot and how much noise and pollution will it bring to an average day. Near me an old house was knocked down years ago, there has been much questioning of what will occupy that lot? And today, I have the answer. I must say it is an exciting development in the neighbourhood. The lot is big enough it should accommodate parking and greenspace that might be required for a RONALD McDONALD HOUSE!

A big shout out to what Ronald McDonald House does for children and families. When children are having treatments in nearby hospitals RMDH gives families a private living space to stay together close to where they need to be. There are laundry and kitchen facilities and play areas. I can tell you all about it but a visit to the Ronald McDonald House site is well worth it.

There are only 2 locations currently in Saskatchewan, Saskatoon and Prince Albert. Regina, looks like you are next and Southern Saskatchewan will see the benefits. Families in Ogema, Lumsden, Cupar, Carlyle, Kisbey and Stoughton to name just a few communities have used the Ronald McDonald House model in the past. This location cuts down on travel time and keeps families close to home.

I feel a volunteer opportunity coming on in the future! Welcome to Regina RMDH.
