Hats off to Mother’s Day

Rocky Mountain Village residents will receive the gift of style and sun protection this Mother’s Day.

Female residents of Rocky Mountain Village will receive the gift of style and sun protection this Mother’s Day.

The Ladies Auxiliary bought wide-brimmed hats, candles and flower arrangements to be distributed to women at the retirement home in time for Sunday.

The not-for-profit group relies solely on donations to buy gifts for residents on special occasions such as Mother’s Day.

“A lot of people don’t have family here, so this way everybody is remembered,” said member Rosa Rocca.

Members have vowed to continue the good work of former president Wilda Quail, who passed away in February this year and was a driving force of the Ladies Auxiliary.

Anyone who wishes to donate to the group can contact president Gloria Blakey at 250-423-6616.
