On October 18, 2012, the Constance-Lethbridge Foundation held its first ever benefit event, 75 Years of Possibilities, in honour of the Constance-Lethbridge Rehabilitation Centre’s 75th anniversary. Guests enjoyed a menu of hors d’oeuvres based on local products and wine from Domaine Les Brome, while listening to a jazz trio that gave the event a festive air. Guided tours of the Constance-Lethbridge Rehabilitation Centre were offered, where guests learned first-hand from the Centre’s staff of its programs, services and equipment. The event also included a visit of the newly renovated therapeutic garden, which includes adapted gardening areas and zones for practising adapted sports.
