Every June Canada celebrates Seniors' Month. 2014 is the 30th Anniversary of this celebration in Ontario with the theme for this year being "Aging Without Boundaries: 30 Years of Celebrating Seniors". There are events throughout the province, and indeed Canada as a whole, that recognize seniors and their ongoing contribution to society. It really is quite wonderful that we denote a month to recognize seniors and to encourage events and opportunities to do this. Seniors who are involved in activity programs or with seniors agencies will likely know about many events taking place throughout this month however, if a senior is not connected in that way, they may not be aware of this.
If you have seniors in your life, you may want to let them know that they can easily find out events through their local seniors agency, the website for the senior secretariat, or simply doing a search online for seniors events in June in their region.
While group celebrations are great, the personal touch is far more important. So if you do have a senior in your life, take some time to let them know you appreciate all they have done - a small gesture often goes a long way!
