The Seaway Senior Citizens Club hosted their Seniors Active Living Fair and let me tell you – there is never a dull moment when they host an event!

The seniors’ club, located at 506 Pitt St. in Cornwall, offers many programs to encourage seniors to live actively, both physically and mentally. Many community partners were present at the Fair to offer information, support, healthy snacks, and swag to local seniors and their families.

The event was funded by a grant from the Older Adult Centres’ Association of Ontario (OACAO).

“The OACAO grants out money to seniors’ centers across the province of Ontario,” shared a representative at the fair from Mississauga, “We work with the Ministry for Seniors and Accessibility. This fiscal year, we provided grants for 67 fairs across the province of Ontario.”

Special highlights of the Fair included a comedy session by local comedian Mark Vincent and a gardening information Q & A with local expert gardener, Fred Deschamps. Other unique offerings were a foot health assessment clinic with Tender Foot and a session on starting a new business “after 50” with Cedar Barn Homestead of Avonmore.

Mayor Justin Towndale and MPP Nolan Quinn were present at the Fair to show their support for the Seaway Senior Citizens Club and their important contributions to the community.
