Staff and clients of the MAB-Mackay’s Day Centre brought along their dancing shoes on June 12, kicking up their heels in celebration of the program’s Silver Jubilee. For a quarter of a century, the Day Centre has been providing services to blind and visually impaired seniors.
The revelers were eager to share personal tributes. Robert read a touching letter that he had written describing the Day Centre as a second home, while Mike sang his rendition of the Beatles’ Let it Be, which he cheekily repurposed and renamed MAB.
Live music provided a lively backdrop to the festivities as Bernie Green, a former employee of the CIUSSS West–Central Montreal and now a volunteer at the Day Centre, enticed the seniors to form a conga line.
And from there, they embarked on the next leg of the long and winding road.
