Show Appreciation for Seniors June 6 to 12

50

June 6 to 12 is Seniors’ Week, and it’s a great opportunity to show appreciation for older adults and the many contributions they make to our communities through volunteerism, assisting charities, and by supporting family members and friends.

This year’s theme is ‘Move & Groove – finding inspiration that moves you.’ It aims to inspire Calgarians to find joy through dance, music, and different cultural experiences. A variety of free events will be held in-person, with some online options as well. Events include music and dance performances, drop-in fitness classes, nature walks, cultural celebrations, presentations, and more. Participating Seniors’ Week partners include Studio Bell National Music Centre, Calgary Zoo, Telus Spark, the THIRD ACTion Film Festival, and various senior serving organizations.

Seniors’ Week has been recognized since 1986 to celebrate and acknowledge the contributions seniors make to enhancing the quality of life in Alberta.
