Grande Spirit Foundation Invites Community to the Grand Opening of Pleasant View Lodge in Spirit River, Alberta on June 1st, 2024.  We are thrilled to announce the Grand opening of the new Pleasant View Lodge in Spirit River, Alberta being held during “Spirit Days” celebration weekend. The Grand opening of Pleasant View Lodge is more than just a celebration; it is a testament to the power of community, compassion, and collaboration.

"Together with our community partners, the government of Alberta is committed to making sure that Albertans have access to a safe, secure, and affordable place to call home. The Grande Spirit Foundation’s dedication and hard work to create a home of comfort and care go a long way to prioritize the well-being of our seniors and strengthen community bonds. Congratulations on this major milestone."

Honorable Jason Nixon, Minister of Seniors, Community and Social Services.

"As we open the doors of Pleasant View Lodge, we welcome our seniors to a home of comfort and care. We invite the entire community to join us in celebrating the spirit of togetherness, compassion, and resilience that defines who we are. June 1st marks the beginning of a new chapter, where every smile, every laugh, and every shared moment reaffirms our commitment to enriching the lives of those we serve."
