posted on May 31 2019

Blackfalds, Alberta (May 31, 2019) – Council proclaimed June 2 – 8, 2019 as Seniors’ Week in Blackfalds at the May 28 Regular Council Meeting. During the first full week of June, Albertans can show appreciation for Alberta’s seniors and all that they contribute to Alberta and our community.

“As a municipality we have celebrated Seniors’ Week for many years,” stated Family and Community Support Services Manager, Sue Bornn adding, “We are grateful for the important role seniors play in our community.”

Seniors’ Week is a time to acknowledge the diversity of seniors and to increase public awareness of their vital role in our community. Throughout the year, but especially during this week, residents are encouraged to show appreciation for contributions from seniors in our community.

Participation from seniors in the collaborative FCSS, Blackfalds Parent Link and Kids Konnection and Licensed Family Day Home Intergenerational Events held twice a year is appreciated by the families and young children who attend.

This year, Blackfalds seniors are invited to join FCSS on June 4th for a visit to Ellis Bird Farm for a walking tour, tea and pie, followed by free time to explore on their own. As this event is included under our intergenerational programming banner, we are also accepting families with young children as attendees, that are able to drive themselves to attend.
