Photo Contest Winners!

March 26th, 2015

The results of the Points West Living Photo Contest are in. Congratulations to Denise Johnston for this first place photo!
Denise works as a Health Care Aid in the Pioneer Place cottage at Points West Living Stettler, which is where she captured this playful moment between her granddaughter Hailey and resident Elsie Harvey.

Denise’s daughter volunteers at PWL Stettler, and Hailey and her two year old brother usually come along and play with residents. Denise says, “When Elsie sees those kids walk in, her eyes light up. My grandson actually perches on her walker when they go for a walk.” Hailey and Elsie have developed a special bond, and fortunately Denise had a camera ready to catch and share this delightful friendship.

Other PWL Photo Contest winners are:

  - Brendan Roy takes second place for a spookily fabulous photo of his great grandmother Lois Johnston along with GM Shannon Pugh, hamming it up at PWL Wainwright. Brendan is a Grade 12 student who already has his own company, BbRoy Photography.
  - Third place goes to Shannon Pugh, for her wonderful snap of PWL Wainwright resident Bertha Bischke, who is holding up a staff member’s visiting Chihuahua. As Shannon says, “Can you believe Bertha is 102 years young?!”

Thanks to everyone who entered the PWL Photo Contest.
