Senior's Week in Saskatchewan
Posted on Monday August 19, 2013 at 04:51PM
From September 30th to October 6, 2013, it is Senior's Week in Saskatchewan.
Why don't we celebrate our seniors? Your special events will make this celebration a success and show how important Seniors are everyday in every community. Here are some suggestions for getting going!
- Involve as many people as possible--work with other groups such as Schools, Youth groups, Service clubs, Other senior's groups, Churches, Museums
- Use everyone's skills and ideas. Have a fashion show, theme party, intergenerational cook off, talent show with a box lunch, display of the past,
- Get involved in issues. Have a speaker or a forum on such topics as How much exercise is enough, senior's housing, senior's and the law, and family caregiving
- Be creative and learn something new..host a pancake breakfast, organize a garden tour, set up a paperback exchange
Remember that small can be beautiful. Your event should not be work and worry. It should be fun and revitalizing. Need help planning or supporting or promoting an event? Contact Lorri at the Community Development Office, 306-483-2747.
