Walkerton man treats nursing home staff, residents to doughnuts

WALKERTON – Jim Scott has been asked why he bought 34 dozen doughnuts a couple of weeks ago to deliver to the staff and residents at Brucelea Haven, Maple Court Retirement Residence and Fordwich Village Nursing Home.

The Walkerton man has no trouble answering – to put smiles on the faces of the people who built this country.

“They’re the backbone of our country,” Scott said.

And they’re a group that’s too often forgotten, in his view.
