On Saturday, February 11 between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm, the Seaway Senior Citizens Club will host a Seniors Active Living Fair at their Centre located at 506 Pitt St. in Cornwall.
Free of charge and open to the general public, the Fair is funded by the Older Adult Centres Association of Ontario (OACAO) and the Ministry of Seniors and Accessibility.
The event will highlight over twenty booths, presentations, and demonstrations, all geared towards providing more healthy and active lifestyles for older adults. Hot on the heels of their 40th anniversary celebrations in 2022, the Seaway Seniors see hosting this Fair as a great way to start 2023.
Located in the heart of Cornwall, on the corner of Pitt and Fifth Streets, the Centre is pleased to play host to some important services, activities, and programs that are available to seniors within Cornwall, Akwesasne, and S D & G.
Special highlights of the Fair will include a comedy session by local comedian Mark Vincent and a gardening information Q & A with local expert gardener, Fred Deschamps. Other unique offerings will include a foot health assessment clinic with Tender Foot and a session on starting a new business “after 50” with Cedar Barn Homestead of Avonmore.
Healthy snacks will also be provided.
Seaway Seniors Managing Director, Darnell Proulx says, “The Seniors Active Living Fair is in keeping with the Club mission to promote creative and active healthy living for people over 50 years of age by offering activities within a friendly, inclusive, and inviting community.” She adds, “The public is extended a warm welcome to come out and chat with exhibitors, observe demonstrations, and attend the seminars”.
The Seaway Senior Citizen Club volunteer Board of Directors are looking forward to opening their doors for this Seniors Active Living Fair, February 11 from 10 am to 2 pm and are grateful to the OACAO and the provincial Ministry of Seniors and Accessibility for providing the funding support to make it possible.
