The Vermilion Valley Lodge Celebrates 57 Years!
October 17, 2017
In October 1960, the Lodge was completed and 12 residents moved in! In 1977, 1983 & 1999 the lodge was expanded to 84 units. By 1995, we amalgamated with the Vermilion Housing Authority. By ministerial order, the Vermilion & District Housing Foundation was established as a managment body.
What a history! On October 17, 2017, we celebrate 57 years of providing safe, affordable housing for seniors.
