Fresh Air by the Water

Colonnade Day Program's Quinn Satellite program strives to provide the residents with as many opportunities as possible. They regularly participate in many activities offered by Colonnade Day Program such as flyer preparation and delivery, music therapy, and swimming to name a few. The Quinn Satellite program also ensures that the participants maximize all opportunities for fresh air and exercise. They often go on long walks and break for a picnic lunch.  For as long as the weather cooperates you will often find this group in open natural areas such as nature trails, beaches, and parks. If you happen to come across them, be sure to give them a wave and hello. Here is a picture of Gavin during a walk around Petrie Island enjoying the cool crisp air.
