National Seniors Day 2018 Celebration

Settlement ISC Community, Seniors, updates

In October, Immigrant Services Calgary’s seniors program hosted the 8th Annual National Seniors Day celebration in collaboration with the City of Calgary and Calgary Chinese Elderly Citizens’ Association at the Kerby Centre. The event was very successful with over 300 community members in attendance. The afternoon featured inspiring volunteering stories from seniors, welcome addresses from three levels of government, multi-cultural performances and a cake cutting ceremony. This special day was opportunity for us to acknowledge seniors and their contributions to our society.
