Seniors’ Week starts on June 5th and the Lacombe Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) has a full week of activities planned.
“We have a lot of organizations that are putting on events this whole week. There's a whole plethora of activities to take part in which can be found at the local FCSS website,” explained Carlene Wagner, Seniors Coordinator for the Lacombe FCSS.
This Monday, the week kicks off with the movie 'RV’ starring Robin Williams at Lacombe City Cinemas. The movie, popcorn, and a drink will cost only $5.
“Cozy Corner is hosting a strawberry tea, the Lacombe Legion has some entertainment, and the Lodge is doing their outdoor BBQ with entertainment. There are some fitness classes with the City of Lacombe,” explained Wagner.
Wagner says the events are a great way to socialize and see what the community has to offer for seniors and older adults in Lacombe.
“It's definitely a great way to meet new people and to try out things that maybe they're interested in but haven't had the opportunity to attend,” said Wagner.
She is looking forward to celebrating our local seniors this week.
“It's important to celebrate the older adults, in our community, and it's just a great week to showcase all of the resources that are out there and to kind of give back to the seniors,” added Wagner.
