Social Committee Donation

When the Clubhouse was closed due to Covid-19 restrictions it became necessary to cancel two Social Committee dances and offer residents refunds. We proposed three options which included donating their ticket money to the Neighbour to Neighbour Centre a charity dedicated to improving quality of life for Hamiltonians in need. I am pleased to announce that due to the generosity of our residents we were able to make a donation of $812.

MAEOTS, Henry (Heino)


It is with great sadness that the family of Henry (Heino) Maeots announces his passing at the

Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice in Hamilton after a brief illness on Saturday, June 13th, 2020 at the age of 75.  Henry will be lovingly remembered by his wife Wendy of 34 years and his son Alek as well as extended family in Sault Ste Marie, Toronto, the U.S., Australia and Estonia. 


Henry and Wendy moved to Garth Trails in 2009 and enjoyed friendships with many residents.  He especially enjoyed playing guitar and was a member of Trail Mix for several years. 


The family would like to thank the staff at the Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice as well as their friends and neighbours in the Garth Trails Community for their care and support during this difficult time. 


The family welcomes donations as an expression of sympathy instead of flowers to Diabetes Canada or The Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice in Hamilton, Ontario.

In view of the pandemic facing all Canadians, it strikes me that there may be an opportunity right here in our Garth Trails Community to assist anyone who feels vulnerable during this crisis. I am Judy Prior, I live on Mapleleaf Trail.


Effective Monday March 16th until April 1st I am offering small errand and grocery shopping services to those who may not be comfortable going to stores and pharmacies during this outbreak. 


THERE IS NO COST!!! I am offering this to assist you if you need starts at home right?? 


I will run errands every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday - leaving the house around 10am.


Types of errands:

- Small grocery orders (you provide the list)

- Prescription pick up

- Post office  - get stamps, mail parcels, mail post etc


- Just ask me!!


In all scenarios I will pick up the list of items, pay cash and provide receipt for immediate reimbursement upon delivery. I am not running a company, I am volunteering  to help out if I can. That said, I will need to be reimbursed immediately upon completion of your errand. 


If I can help you out, please call me at the number below so we can arrange your errand!!

​Dear Garth Trails Friends & Neighbours,

The Pronesti family would like to thank all of the generous and thoughtful residency of Garth Trails for your support during this most difficult time. We are truly grateful for your emails, cards, phone calls, food, visitation and thoughtful messages of support in the passing of Lois Marie Pronesti. The kindness provided by this community brought a great deal of comfort and relief to our family during this time of sorrow. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and consideration. The support offered by this community is truly appreciated and is an example of what makes this community so great.


Special thanks to Sheila Mahony and the Bereavement committee for their help and support in taking care of all the details in setting up the club house for family and friends to gather directly following the funeral. We are grateful for the support and thoughtfulness you provided. 

This time of year, the days get shorter and darkness falls early.

It is hard for drivers to see residents walking the grounds at night.  For your safety, please consider wearing reflective clothing such as a lanyard, wristband, or reflective leash for your dog.

Thank you

Dear Garth Trails Friends & Neighbours,


The Bob Burr Family would like to take this time to express their thanks to friends and neighbours for the many lovely cards, kind words and phone messages we received following the sudden passing of our dear husband/father.


It was such a comfort to know that he had touched so many lives in his own way and your outpouring of support has helped our family cope though this very difficult time. 


Your continued friendship is greatly appreciated. 



Carole Burr & Family
