Com­mu­nity Sup­port for Con­naught Home

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

In May 2015, Dr. Ray Los­ito par­tic­i­pated in a work­shop at Hovey Manor with a group of con­cerned cit­i­zens re­gard­ing the fu­ture of Con­naught Home in North Hat­ley and Grace Vil­lage in Len­noxville. Th­ese work­shops were held at var­i­ous venues through­out the re­gion and in­cluded a sur­vey de­signed to guide de­ci­sion mak­ers work­ing to­wards a pro­ject for re­newal for th­ese two his­toric se­niors’ res­i­dences. It was at this meet­ing where Dr. Los­ito learned that Con­naught and Grace are non-profit char­i­ta­ble se­niors’ care fa­cil­i­ties re­liant on the com­mu­nity at large for sup­port. Dr. Los­ito was moved to con­tact the Con­naught and of­fer his as­sis­tance. He then em­barked on a vol­un­teer mis­sion to raise $3400 for the pur­chase of a new, state of the art, ther­a­peu­tic bed. Us­ing Jay’s Restau­rant in North Hat­ley as his head­quar­ters, Dr. Los­ito gal­va­nized the sup­port of a few friends. Do­nat­ing his own piece of art­work, a beau­ti­ful paint­ing of a North Hat­ley win­ter streetscape, over the fol­low­ing months he vis­ited sev­eral venues through­out the East­ern Town­ships rais­ing aware­ness and funds one small con­tri­bu­tion at a time. Dr. Los­ito is known for his com­mit­ment to his com­mu­nity and has over his life­time in­vested many hours sup­port­ing var­i­ous causes. Mas­saw­ippi Re­tire­ment Com­mu­ni­ties and the Dr. W. J. Klinck Foun­da­tion are for­ever grate­ful to Dr. Los­ito and all those who sup­ported his ef­forts to con­trib­ute to the on­go­ing mis­sion to pro­vide ex­cel­lent, com­pas­sion­ate and lov­ing care to the res­i­dents of Con­naught Home.
