Young Couple Chooses Valley East
After Considering What The Future Will Offer For Their Children
Patti and Sean Carroll were born and raised in Garson. The 32 year old
parents of three young children, shown in the photo above, had decided to
renovate their home in Garson when they spotted a number of attractive
houses for sale in Valley East. It didn't take them long to spot the
potential for the future with respect to the recreational facilities and
schools available for their children and at the beginning of July moved
into their home in the Elmview area.
Ken Desjardins, on the left, owner of Desjardins' Food Basics, and Mike
Lemieux, on the far right, owner of Hanmer Home Hardware, presented the
Carroll Family with a "Welcome Home Gift Basket", a special
initiative just introduced by the two merchants to welcome people who
purchase new homes or who settle into apartments in the communities of
Valley East and Capreol. The Carrolls were the first recipients of the
"Welcome Home Gift Basket". Two other couples, one from
Mississauga and one from Alberta, were to receive theirs the following
While the gift basket may only contain a little better than $100 worth
of helpful products, the Carrolls were thrilled to have been welcomed in
such a warm manner.
"We are so glad we moved here," exclaimed Patti. "We just
can't believe how friendly everyone has been. Our children have already
made new friends and they just love it here."
Sean, who works for the City of Greater Sudbury as a Fire Fighter at
the Airport, commented, "The thing that we are most impressed with
are the facilities in this town. Where we live now we can walk to the
Howard Armstrong Recreation Centre, the Library and the Hanmer Valley
Shopping Centre. Now, with a Canadian Tire coming in and places like
Hanmer Home Hardware, Desjardins' Food Basics, the Hart Department Store
and all of the other stores and services so close, it wasn't hard to
decide. It's just as close to go to work as it was from Garson and I am
going to be a Volunteer Fire Fighter at the Val Therese Station #16."
Sean is shown in the photo holding their youngest child, 3-year old
Ben. Standing behind the basket are Ryan (10) and his sister Emma (8). The
children will be attending Redwood Acres Public School in the fall.
The Carrolls are quite typical of young families who are choosing to
live in Valley East. The community is large enough to provide a wide range
of recreational and commercial facilities, and yet still retains
that special community spirit that adds to the quality of life.
As for anyone moving into the communities of Valley East and/or Capreol
on or after July 1, 2006, don't forget to stop in and pick up your FREE
WELCOME HOME GIFT BASKET from Hanmer Home Hardware in the Hanmer Valley
Shopping Centre. Just ask to see Mike.
