Twenty three seniors took part in a mini-bus tour Saturday sponsored by the Castlegar branch of the Senior Citizens’ Association of BC to familiarize them with the procedures, routes and schedules of the local transit system.
Castlegar city councillor Bruno Tassone and BC Transit supervisor Sharman Thomas accompanied the group. The tour followed both the North Castlegar and Southridge loops and ended with a lunch at the senior’s centre.
“It was a success,” said branch director Bev Kennedy. “ Most are looking forward to their next bus adventure.”
The free event was sponsored by the City of Castlegar, Regional District of Central Kootenay and BC Transit and is just one of the many seniors activities put on by the Senior Citizens’ Association, Branch No. 46.
