They’ve helped to build our city, our businesses and our communities. They sit on boards and committees, they’re highly involved in community and charity work, and they mentor and care for neighbours, friends and family.
June 1 to 7 is Seniors’ Week, a time to recognize the older adults in your life and the many ways they make a difference every day. To help celebrate Calgary seniors, various events are being held across the city all week long. Some events are specifically for seniors, others are for the whole family to enjoy along with their elder friends or family members.
The most up-to-date list of events is online, but printed versions are available for pick up at all Calgary community associations and several seniors’ centres. And you can always contact 311 for information. Or find your own special way to celebrate the older adults in your life.
Either way, share your celebration stories and photos with us on our Seniors' Week Facebook Event page or on Twitter, using the hashtag #yycseniors.
Seniors’ Week is an annual designation by the Province of Alberta, supported by The City of Calgary through a proclamation by Mayor Naheed Nenshi.
