Bells Corners Canada Day bunting at the the Stillwater Creek Retirement Community.

The 16-year-old building has 200 units, 120 employees and 6 centenarians (including an admiral with WW II combat experience).

Residents seem to really like the place.

New manager at FreshCo, where the Chopper was chopped six years ago.

Formerly Hooters.
