A RAY OF HOPE
Seniors at Forum Italia Senior’s Residence and Villa Forum LTC. gathered outside to enjoy the sunshine, fresh air and wonderful musical entertainment provided by Zingaro of Baci Entertainment and Laura Tonelli. Although we all have to adjust to a new normal, we can continue to bring joy and happiness to those most in need. This day truly brought lots of smiles to our isolated seniors.
We were honoured to be in the presence of the up and coming star Roberta Battaglia who came out to celebrate a milestone birthday and to entertain our seniors. It was wonderful to see the seniors dancing from their windows and in our parking lot. Roberta continues to touch and move everyone’s heart with her amazing personality. Look out for Roberta on AGT – America Has Talent on Tuesday May 26th, 2020. MICBA is behind her all the way and we are all routing for her.
