Slocan Senior Connect

Senior Connect is a complimentary event designed specifically for seniors to foster connections, offer valuable information, and promote an active lifestyle.
WEGCSS is pleased to announce that we have received funding under the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program for our project, Seniors Connect. This federal grants and contributions program supports projects that are led or inspired by seniors who are making a difference in the lives of others in their communities.
The funds will be used to organize two distinct series of events at the Slocan Legion Hall. Firstly, a social event will be conducted on the first Wednesday of every month, starting from April 2024 until February 2025 (excluding January), from 10 am to 12 pm. Our primary objective is to provide the senior community with an informative guest speaker who will discuss topics relevant and beneficial to them. Moreover, attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy live music, snacks, and locally sourced tea and coffee. On the other hand, the fitness events will take place on the second and third Wednesdays of each month (excluding January). The specific timings for these events will be announced as they become available, and we will ensure that qualified instructors are scheduled to lead these sessions.
Thank you to the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program for the funding support provided to WEGCSS. It will make a significant difference in the lives of seniors in our community.
