She encouraged everyone to celebrate and help each other build hope, promise, joy and compassion in this season.

“We will continue to support one another and help each other on our healing journeys,” Sellars said. “Today is a time yes — to eat and be merry, but also a time to talk, laugh, and share in the blessings we are given each and every day.”

Gifts to the elders included glass centrepieces and poinsettias, as well as snowflake decorations for everyone to take home.
