Making Lives Better: Perry Curtis

We asked several members of the Deer Lodge Centre Foundation Board of Directors why they support Deer Lodge Centre. These are their answers.


“Care for veterans”

Perry Curtis
Chapel Lawn/Arbor Memorial

Deer Lodge Centre’s continuing commitment to providing care to Canadian veterans is integral to my desire to lend my support to the Deer Lodge Foundation as a board member. My family history includes many veterans of the First and Second World War, and we openly discuss their contributions as a proud fact. The dedication of Deer Lodge Centre to their clients, both veterans and non-veterans, makes it an easy decision to work together with the other members of the Board to try and achieve the motto of “Making Lives Better”.

Coupled with my own personal reasons for volunteering, Chapel Lawn/Arbor Memorial has a longstanding relationship of support for Deer Lodge that I am very pleased to continue. I originally was invited to sit on the planning committee for the annual golf tournament, which then led to my participation on the Deer Lodge Foundation board of directors. The heartfelt desire of the board to help improve the centre for the clients, their families and the staff, makes me proud to be a part of something this special.
