I am honoured to not only live in Whistler but to also have the best job in Whistler.
I work with the amazing seniors. Yes, there are lots of seniors who are not only living but also thriving in Whistler.
Last Thursday (Sept. 6), Whistler Community Services Society (WCSS) and the Mature Action Committee (MAC) hosted the grand opening of the new seniors drop in centre. We are calling this the Seniors Intergenerational Activity Centre.
The energy in the room was invigorating and with over 70 people in attendance, WCSS and MAC would like to say thank you to all those who attended and supported our New Horizons for Seniors project roll out.
We were happy to have MP John Weston, Mayor Nancy Wilhelm-Morden, MAC President Sue Lawther and WB Foundation’s Doug Forsyth speak as well as receiving a Blessing from Ronnie Lester of Lil’Wat First Nations.
Also, a special thank you to Nesters Market and Bruce Stewart for providing lovely snacks for the event. It was wonderful to feel the support from all the guests and recognize people who have helped build our community and are now supporting programming for seniors in the community.
WCSS is honored to have the support of our local seniors and looks forward to taking the energy in the room and carrying it over to our weekly drop in sessions on Thursdays from 1 to 3 p.m. at Whistler Blackcomb Foundation Social Services Centre at 1519 Spring Creek Drive.
For any questions please call me at 604-902-0865.
