The Winnipegosis and District Health Centre (WDHC) board of directors would like to congratulate Dr. Alison Carleton and Cyndie Blythe on becoming Canadian citizens on Feb 21.
The couple participated in their citizenship ceremony via Zoom, reciting their oath, cutting up their permanent residence card and singing the national anthem with their invited guests.
The next day, board members, staff and residents of WDHC gathered to celebrate the happy achievement with the couple.
Dr. Carleton and Cyndie moved to Winnipegosis in December 2017 and are proud to tell everyone they meet that they have always felt welcomed in the community and they are “living the dream.”
Cyndie and Dr. Carleton have built their dream home on an acreage outside of the community and enjoy all aspects of rural life, thoroughly embracing the moto live, work, play.
They have a home on the river bank, they have work at the Winnipegosis and District Health Centre and they can play right in their back yard, canoeing in the river and farming on their property.
The Royal Purple is supporting a national awareness and prevention campaign in March to raise awareness of the seriousness of brain injury.
The Winnipegosis Royal Purple will be holding information sessions in the Winnipegosis New Horizon’s Senior Centre, the Winnipegosis Elementary School and the Winnipegosis Collegiate to help bring awareness to this important topic.
The Winnipegosis Elementary school children have just completed a Brain Injury Awareness Poster Contest and winners will be announced shortly.
