Matthew Hunt who often helped with Open Table, here is an update about his
move to London, Ontario.
You may have also seen the
article in the Stittsville News about Matthew helping at the Stittsville
Villa and the big sendoff party they gave him. Lorna & I visited some
friends in London last week and I visited Matthew at his new home. He is
living in a group home organized by Community Living London. His home is
very nice and quite new. He has 5 other lads living in the house and it is
supervised by 3 young adults. They organize many interesting events for
their residents. One of them is a bus trip to toronto to attend a Blue Jays
game. Here is a picture of Matthew at the back of his residence with one of
his roommates and the young lady is one of the supervisors.
