The Dunfield just fits in with my lifestyleexpand

A graduate of the Ontario College of Art with a degree in Architectural Designing, George never lost his true love and passion for Art, even though it took him almost a lifetime to be able to truly devote his time to painting. After fifteen years of being a draftsman, he accepted a position working for Harley Parker Chief Designer at the Royal Ontario Museum. George’s career in design really took off when he had the rare opportunity to work with Marshall McLuhan a Canadian educator, philosopher, scholar and communication theorist (The Medium is the Message). His association with Marshall gave him the opportunity to become Chief Designer of the Museum of the City of New York. Later, George became Marshall’s assistant at the Centre for Communications at the University of Toronto. George served in the Canadian Air Force for four years. He was very active in the Scouting movement for over thirty years as well. George loved dogs, especially Mack who taught him everything he would ever need to know. He felt the same way about his beloved brother Bill who always supported his efforts. George is an active member of the Don Valley Art Club, Toronto Watercolor Society and also the Arts and Letters Club. He has his own private art collection and continues to paint whenever he feels like it. George has taken on a new role at The Dunfield as a life coach and mentor. He enjoys spending time with young individuals and encourages them to get a good education and to pursue their dreams. "The Dunfield just fits in with my lifestyle" ...

The Dunfield - a community of like-minded peopleexpand

Ilse was born in the Dutch East Indies on the island of Java on a tea and rubber plantation to Dutch parents. Her parents encouraged her from an early age to be involved and actively engaged in life learning. She was also encouraged to stay healthy and active, despite being in a war and deprived of a proper youth. Always trying to practice what she preached, Ilse moved to Australia to pursue a career as a nurse specializing in midwifery and then moved to Canada and specialized in cardiology. Ilse tries to "live" everyday of her life and makes every effort not to waste any aspect of it. She loves being involved in physical fitness, and feels that athletics is a form of preventative medicine that helps her keep a positive attitude. She also enjoys being a role model for other seniors. Since the age of 55, Ilse has been involved as a committee member and participant in the Senior Games of Ontario competing in Tennis, Swimming and Table Tennis. Her competitive spirit has enabled her to participate and compete in local, provincial and national games in Canada. She is an amateur Gold Medalist. Ilse recently was invited to represent Canada in swimming at the US Senior Games being hosted by Mr. & Mrs. George Bush in Houston, Texas in June 2011. You can find Ilse at The Dunfield encouraging residents to get active and to participate no matter what their level of fitness or current ability. "The Dunfield offers us a chance to be part of a community of like-minded people from all walks of life. The residents enjoy sharing their life experiences, which makes life more interesting." ...
