The Envision Counselling and Support celebrated International Women's Day by handing out roses to female Creighton Lodge residents on March 7.
Outreach coordinator Sheena Wock told women at the lodge that Envision wanted to salute them for their efforts to pioneer for women's rights.
“(It's been beneficial) for my generation, my mother's generation and for the next generation,” said Wock.
Envision has been distributing roses to the lodge's female tenants for a number of years.
Most of the roses were handed out in the lodge's lounge and cafeteria, but Envision representatives did go to a few residents' rooms to distribute the flowers.
International Women's Day is on March 8 each year.
