Several Oceanside RCMP members dressed in their full red dress uniforms — and with a police puppy-in-training in tow — visited the seniors at Eagle Park Health Care Facility in Qualicum Beach on Friday, March 23.
Their mission: to spread some pre-Easter cheer, and hand out some chocolate to the residents.
The police team included Staff Sgt. Marc Pelletier, community policing liaisons Const. Danielle Swanson and Const. Mike Dally, and Const. Kyle Sharpe of the police dog team.
Their mission appeared to be an unqualified success, with some residents lighting up as they saw the officers in uniform, others the puppy, and others, the chocolate.
