Seniors seminar coming

Rimbey FCSS/RCHHS, Rimoka Housing Foundation and the Seniors Drop In Centre will sponsor a half-day seminar

Rimbey FCSS/RCHHS, Rimoka Housing Foundation and the Seniors Drop In Centre will sponsor a half-day seminar for seniors called “When I’m 64”.

The seminar, which will be presented Jan. 3 by The Rural Way, is all about giving seniors a say in their community’s future.

With growing challenges in areas such as health, housing, recreation, and transportation, the “When I’m 64” seminar is designed to help seniors in rural Alberta communities get a handle on the things they love, the challenges they face, and the resources they already have in place in their community so they can begin tackling these challenges themselves.

“This is a really fun and practical way for seniors to gather together and have a say in their future!” says, Peggy Makofka with Rimbey FCSS/ RCHHS. “The seminar will introduce our community to The Rural Way by guiding a group of our seniors through four activities that drive to the heart of their challenges and the resources available to meet them.”

To learn more or to sign up for the half-day “When I’m 64” seminar, call the Rimbey FCSS/RCHHS office. There is no charge to attend. The event is on Jan. 3 at the Seniors Drop In Centre from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be a light lunch served.

The Rural Way is a service of Communities Development Society and offers workshops and seminars for individuals and communities across Alberta. Learn more at
