FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Seniors Task Force, Urban Systems, and the City of Fort St. John will be holding micro-events for seniors until mid-December.
According to a task force member, Jon Gosselin, the idea came about after the flower campaign from the summer.
Ideas were tossed around, voted on and then taken to seniors to also vote on.
“One of the things that [seniors] value most is being able to spend time with people. When we really looked at it from that perspective, we realized that the best thing that we could do is find ways to help them connect more with community,” says Gosselin.
The Micro-Events are a way for seniors to get out and about, reintegrate back into society, and reconnect with community members.
Some of the upcoming events include a visit to the North Peace Museum, a movie night, dinner and Bingo, and some Christmas activities.
Any seniors who are interested but require transportation can contact Gosselin at 250-263-5970.
