Antigonish Mayor Laurie Boucher gave the confirmation at Monday night’s town council meeting that May 14th to 20th will now officially belong to VON Antigonish.
The Victorian Order of Nurses is Canada’s largest non-for-profit charitable home and community care organization.
In 2015, major cuts were made to the VON program which left operation only in Nova Scotia and Ontario.
Dayna Barnes, the Community Support Coordinator for VON Antigonish, attributes their success to partnerships from the surrounding community.
VON week will wrap up Friday with an open house from 1 to 4 pm at the office in Antigonish Market Square.
