A group of young princesses paid some White Rock seniors a visit on a recent Friday.

The 15 girls, aged two to six, arrived dressed in their best princess finery Oct. 19, to be greeted with gifts of magic wands made by residents of Evergreen Baptist Campus of Care at 1550 Oxford St.

In return, the princesses presented the residents with "virtue bookmarks" they made in August at the third annual Princess Party.

The charitable event supports the local fire department’s fundraising for an all-inclusive play park on White Rock's East Beach.

Evergreen residents read the little princesses stories and they were treated to a visit by Snow White.

Evergreen Baptist Campus of Care is a contracted service-provider for the Fraser Health Authority which offers 110 units of subsidized supportive housing, 84 one-bedroom units of assisted living, and 157 units of complex care.

If you have a group or organization that would like to share with Evergreen residents, contact Wendy at 604-541-3813.
