Parkridge Centre, a long-term care home for more than 200 residents in Saskatoon, hosted its annual Car Show on August 17. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the home was unable to host the event on Father’s Day, as it traditionally does. But with the help and creativity of the classic car clubs of Saskatoon, the residents and staff of Parkridge Centre enjoyed seeing these vehicles as they took a victory lap parade in front of their building.
Therapeutic Recreation Services at Parkridge Centre has hosted this event for over 15 years in conjunction with car clubs from around Saskatoon. In the past, classic cars and motorcycles have lined the visitor parking lot, and residents and staff have been able to get up close and personal with the cars and bikes, ask questions and reminisce with the owners, and develop lasting friendships with the classic car and motorcycle community.
Many residents, past and present, have been members of the classic car and motorcycle communities, and this event has served as a way to continue their connections with friends, and foster their love of all things automobile.
Parkridge Centre Therapeutic Recreation Services would like to thank the various Car Clubs of Saskatoon for their flexibility and creativity in helping us put together this unique Cruise Night for the residents.
