FCSS director Amber Houle says they are helping promote both events they are planning, as well as other events happening in the community.

“We want to encourage our seniors to get out and mingle with their peers,” says Houle. “Our seniors are one of the most important demographics of people and they deserve to be celebrated and acknowledged.”

Events will kick off with a 55+ Outing at the Lac Cardinal Regional Pioneer Village Museum on June 5 from 11:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. The museum will celebrate Seniors’ Week with free hotdogs and ice cream floats, all while visitors tour the museum.

“Club du Bon Temps will be having a Seniors’ Week appreciation supper and fellowship,” says Houle.

“It will be held on June 6, and folks are asked to call (780) 618-8483 to get more information.”
