Compost 2018

Just a reminder that this Friday, May 4th is our first compost bin pick up for the season!

Thank you from Chinook Foundation & Diamond Willow

The Chinook Foundation and new Diamond Willow Lodge would like to thank all who helped out before, during and after our big move this past Saturday the 28th of April.  It truly took all of the families and friends, Magrath 5th ward, LDS missionaries and our staff to move all our residents and belongings in such a seamless fashion. Saturday was a great day, and now we are all settling in nicely and enjoining our new building. For those seniors over the age of 65, we still have rooms available, and we would love to have you join us. For those out in our great community that would like to come and do piano and dance recitals, or would like to share their talents, we now have a great venue to do just that.  Call us at 403-758-6866 for more information.

Thanks again, we couldn't have done it with out all of you!!
