The Bucket List

Harrison Pointe recently started a “Bucket List” where residents tell us 5 things that they have always wanted to do but have never had the opportunity. We draw a name monthly and try to make someone’s dream come true. The pictures on this page are of residents fulfilling their dreams!

Helga’s wish was to go to Canada Place and see ‘Fly Over Canada’. So we took Helga and her good friend, Christine, to experience this amazing show where you really feel like you are flying! Then we had a great lunch at the Cactus Club in a spectacular seat with a view of the harbour. It was a truly great day and the weather was perfect? If you have never seen ‘Fly Over Canada’, be a tourist in your own city for a day and take it in. You won’t regret it!


100 year old Audrey jet boats on the Fraser and Stave Rivers. What a great adventure it was.

Marie and Fred’s Bucket List Wish was to go and see LUZIA by Cirque du Soleil. So we got VIP tickets and went downtown Vancouver to watch the performance. It was spectacular! If you have a chance to take this event in, DO IT! The performers are truly amazing and the show is choreographed superbly! And the champagne at the intermission for the VIP guests was a pretty neat bonus!

Here is a link to the official LUZIA trailer on youtube.

John’s Bucket List was to have a flight in a helicopter.   Our co-owner and general manager Glenn Bell’s good friend, Ron Martini, owner of Starline Windows, graciously took time out to make this happen!   Ron took John and Tony up in his helicopter for a scenic tour of the coastal mountains, just north of the Fraser River.   The scenery was spectacular and the expert piloting of Ron made the trip an unforgettable adventure!   A sincere thank you to Ron Martini for making this bucket list a reality!

Thank you, Ron Martini, for making this truly incredible bucket list adventure possible!

“Brian and Tony wanted to ride the Sea to Sky Gondola at Squamish for their Bucket List activity.   So we headed north to Squamish and spent a few hours at the top of the gondola.   Lunch was great and both Brian and Tony tackled the suspension bridge!   Way to go, guys!”


 


 


 

Lee’s bucket list wish was to do a cruise up Indian Arm. So we hired Harbour Cruises and went aboard the M.V. Harbour Princess (a ship that our Food Services Manager, Mike McMeekin used to work aboard) and took a 4 hour lunch cruise from Stanley Park to Indian Arm and back. This was such a great idea that we took 25 residents from Harrison Pointe along.

It was a spectacular day for all!

 

At the Peak to Peak gondola in beautiful Whistler, BC with Sol and Elvin! What a fantastic Day!

Rose’s wish was to see her beloved hockey team, the Montreal Canadiens.   On November 17, 2018, we sent Rose to “The Habs” game at Rogers Arena in Vancouver to play the Vancouver Canucks.   The Habs won 3 to 2 and Rose was ecstatic!
