June is a vibrant month full of sunshine and the welcoming warmth on our winter weary faces. It is the month that raises awareness for ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), Brain Injury, Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus, and Stroke. It is the month we celebrate Pride in our community and all around Canada. For Seniors’ Community Services, June is Seniors Month and a time to celebrate older adults and the extraordinary contributions they bring to this community.
One of the most anticipated events of the year is our Seniors’ BBQ. We missed it for a few years as our world settled into something we did not expect, but in 2022 the party resumed under the blue skies and the swaying trees. There was music and laughter, reconnecting with friends and of course a dance off with Mayor Peckford and the over one hundred attendees. The food was served up with panache by the Kemptville Lions Club chefs and everyone had a wonderful time. This year, we invite you to attend our celebration in honour of the remarkable seniors who are recognized during this month of June – Seniors Month.
On Wednesday, June 21st, from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm at Maplewood Park in Oxford Mills, we will once again gather for this very special event. Please RSVP by Friday, June 14th at 613-258-3203 or by email at [email protected]. What to bring, you may ask? Just a smile, your appetite and a chair.
June also brings recognition for our Transportation Service Volunteer team. They will be receiving a North Grenville Civic Award (group – Seniors) for the exemplary service they provide North Grenville and the folks who access drives that support independent living. Our volunteers and their own vehicles have given over 11,000 hours and driven more than 88,000 kms over the last year. They are a remarkable asset to this community, and we encourage you to attend the awards to show your support to all the award recipients on Thursday, June 8th at 6:30 pm at the Municipal Centre.
And last, but certainly not least, SCS will be hosting its AGM at 215 Sanders on June 20th from 10:30 to 11:30 am. This meeting is a great way to hear more about our organization and get involved. Please RSVP your attendance prior to June 15th by email [email protected] or by phone 613-258-3203.
June is a very special month for SCS – devoted to recognizing the seniors who are the brightly coloured threads that are weaved through the fabric of this community. Watch for highlights on our social media, and follow along. Happy Seniors Month!
