Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) is once again hosting the ultimate one-stop-shop (so to speak) for seniors Oct. 17 with a Seniors' Conference in Milk River at the community's Civic Centre from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
For only $5, seniors will receive lunch, refreshments and a day full of useful information from speakers with a variety of topics. David Hawco will be presenting “Seniors – A Valuable Resource.” Other speakers will include Dr. Krogg's “Green Sleeves” and Cornerstone Funeral Home will be presenting “It's All In Being Ready.”
There will be a discussion on pre-planning with the Calgary Co-Operative Memorial Society plus information provided on frauds and scams by ATB and the RCMP. Over 10 display tables and door prizes will also be a part of the exciting and informative day.
Pre-registration is required and payment can be made at the door. To register, call Shirley at 403-647-7551.
Cindy Lauwen, FCSS Volunteer Services Co-Ordinator and from Seniors Services, said there's a very well involved Conference Planning Committee. “Which has embraced this conference and have taken it and have run with it. They've been amazing.”
“They have a nice day planned out for the seniors,” she added.
A fun fitness break will also be a part of the festivities with assistance from a local fitness professional and there will be coffee breaks too.
“We try to host two conferences a year and try to rotate through the communities, so everyone has an opportunity to be able to host them in their community,” said Lauwen.
“It's a day full of great information and fun,” she noted.
