Castlegar seniors resource expo happening Sept. 30

Event will feature information, resources, refreshments, door prizes, activities and entertainment

Local seniors have a great opportunity to find out about opportunities and supports available in the community at the IRIS Celebrate Seniors Resource Expo.

The event will take place Sept. 30 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Kinnaird Park Community Church building at 1250 26th Street.

The expo is not just for seniors, it’s also for those that support them such as family, neighbours and caregivers.

On top of information and resource connections, the free event will feature refreshments, door prizes, activities and entertainment. Registration is not required.

Participants that wear purple — the symbolic color for seniors — will be entered into a special prize draw.

For more information, contact Sandi McCreight at castlegarcrn@hotmail.com or 250-608-0706.

IRIS (Increasing Recreation Involving Seniors) is a program of the Castlegar Community Response Network.
