It was the opportunity recognize and thank seniors for their service and contributions to their communities and the area.
“We celebrate the input of seniors, what they’ve done in the past and what they do today,” says Jean Moore-Lemoine, the community activities coordinator for Smoky River Family and Community Support Services, which organized the activities.
“It’s an annual event to remind people of the hard work of our seniors.”
Seniors’ Week activities were held from June 7-10 in the Smoky River region.
The first event was held at the Golden Age Club in McLennan on June 7. The second was held at the Villa Beausejour in Falher on June 8.
Another was held at the Club des Pionniers in Donnelly on June 9. The last took place at the Club Etoile in Girouxville on June 10.
Music and cake were the featured items at each event. The Goodtimers band was at some of the events. Moore-Lemoine had some games and activities at the events, too.
