A festive community embrace, The Drive comes alive in green, white and red with piazza-style animated zones, live music, food vendors, patios, lifestyle attractions, family fun activities and more.

My name is Kaitie Unwin – I am the Manager of Communications at Plan Institute – a Vancouver-based non-profit that works to enrich the lives of people with disabilities and their families.
As an organization that also works with people with disabilities and their families, we thought you might be interested in hearing about our upcoming Caregivers Retreat, taking place this Fall at Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Resort in Parksville. The retreat is intended to give family caregivers an opportunity to relax and rejuvenate while connecting with other caregivers.
If you work with family caregivers, or know of anyone within your networks who may benefit from this retreat, we’d love for you to share this information with them!
I have included all detailed information about the retreat below – if you have any questions or would like to speak to me directly, please feel free to give me a call at 604.439.9566 ext: 161.
Thank you so much for your time!
