Wayne Lapointe was born and raised in St. James Town. He has lived all his life in the neighbourhood and has witnessed all the radical transformations the neighbourhood has gone through. Wayne is a very active member of the community and is involved in various initiatives in the neighbourhood especially initiatives including the St. James Town seniors.
Wayne’s friends describe him as one the sweetest and most helpful person in the neighbourhood. He is extremely handy with tools and can fix things using what is available to him at that moment. Wayne single handily repainted an entire room at The Corner that seniors use regularly for their programs. From buying the paint and equipment to scrapping the old paint and putting on the new one, Wayne did it all by himself. It is residents like Wayne, who go over and beyond their obligations that help create a caring and supportive neighbourhood. Wayne is one such good example and as St. James Town residents, we can be proud that we have several others who respond to the needs of the community like Wayne does. Thank you Wayne.
