Van Mall residents are staying active and engaged in community life while practicing exceptional social distancing. Explore how Van Mall’s concierge went the extra mile to entertain residents while respecting new health protocols.

‘Round the Building Tour 2020

Danny Proudfoot is Van Mall’s exceptional concierge and also a professional musician. He often goes the extra mile for our residents. It’s his dedication and thoughtfulness that led him to combine his two professions, performing his music at different locations around Van Mall.

Danny performed in nine different spots around the community, ensuring that residents could hear and see him play. The performance took a week of planning and three days and over 12 hours to complete. The first day called for rain showers, but Danny grabbed a pop-up canopy and sang anyway.

The video was also shared on Facebook Live so that family and friends could view his tour. The cheers and heartfelt thanks from the residents made all the planning worth it.

“Thank you Danny and Destiny for such a wonderful idea!” – Barbara Potter

“Thank you Danny for bringing some joy out on this Friday. Emily and I got up and danced around the room for all of the 45 minutes.” – Connie Ledwidge

Danny will be continuing his ‘Round the Building tour each week until life resumes to normal.
