There are many stories about the East Village in Calgary but here is one you might not know. Margaret is a senior living in East VIllage, like the almost 40% of the population down there that are seniors. She struggles with some of the health issues brought on by her age but she doesn't let that stop her.

Margaret was nominated as Hosteling International's Volunteer of the Year. She helps out in various hidden ways in her community as well, checking in on neighbors who live alone and bringing friendship and kindness to those who may not have a lot of family around.

Margaret doesn't own in the East Village, but has made it her home for over a decade... and she is the heart of the Village
