“This year’s activities promote building inclusive communities and provides an opportunity for seniors to try new things, contribute and remain active and engaged in their local communities.

“I hope the events and activities offered throughout February and March inspire seniors to connect, stay active, share skills and keep doing the things they enjoy, together!”
