We are broken-hearted at the passing of Lucy Ichikawa on February 16th, 2019. Lucy began at Douglas Park 20 years ago as a volunteer and was an integral part of the team at the centre as aProgram Assistant II dedicated to, and passionate about, seniors’ programming (Young at Heart and Wednesday Social Club). She is dearly and deeply missed by the staff, seniors, volunteers and community.
