Thank you to the community of Antigonish for joining us today for our official opening of Phase 1 of Riverside Estates! More than 60 people came to tour our first four units — two of them barrier free — and to celebrate the realization of a vision that has been more than 20 years in the making: creating affordable, energy efficient, sustainable homes for people in our community living on low incomes. We met several of the people who will be moving in, and we heard from our MLA, Randy Delorey Mayor Laurie Boucher, County Councillor, Donnie MacDonald (who is also an AAHS board member), Sr. Brendalee Boisvert of the Sisters of Saint Martha (the Marthas are one of our founding sponsors and supporters), and our Board Chair, Colleen Cameron. All that, and cake, too! Can Phase 2 with 10 more units be far behind? Not if we can help it!
