    Parkland staff wish our Panther families a safe and restful holiday
    by Carol Gribling - Friday, 18 December 2020, 3:24 PM
     

    Staff at Parkland hope you have a safe and restful holiday.  Undoubtedly it will be a different sort of winter break with families staying close to home in their own safe bubbles.  Instead of sunny beaches, busy ski hills and social gatherings it may be more like Netflix marathons, board games and hikes with close friends.  As Bonnie Henry says, "we all have to do our part".  From our Panther family to yours--stay safe, stay healthy and see you in 2021.  We see hope on the horizon!
