Seniors Day a Success!

Seniors Day 2016 was a huge success! Over 200 people attended and learned how to 'Prepare for Today.' Happy faces, toe tappin' music, dancing, and healthy snacks were all apart of this informative and engaging day for seniors and older adults.

Thanks to our friends at Metrobus for offering free rides, and to our presenters, booth exhibitors, staff and volunteers for their effort in this annual event. We hope to see you again at Seniors Day 2017!

Mark your calendar for Party in the Park, taking place from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 7 on the lawn of the bungalow at Bowring Park. Join us for local entertainment and refreshments - all for free! If the weather doesn't cooperate we'll move the party to St. Teresa's Parish Hall at 120 Mundy Pond Road. 

Also, again this summer we're offering a variety of bus tours, both half and full day excursions. Register soon to reserve your seat on the bus. For complete listings and to register see the seniors program listing on RECconnect or take a look at pages 48-49 in the summer City Guide delivered to mailboxes or available at our community centres, or online
