June marks Seniors Month

We invite all interested people to start the month with an online webinar and presentation from Mayor Ferguson thanking the seniors of Prince Edward County for their contributions to The County.

The Mayor will also talk about what Ontario is doing to help seniors “Stay Safe, Active and Connected”. There will be time to ask questions and share concerns at the end of the webinar. Mayor Ferguson will be joined by Community Care Board Chair Barbara Proctor. People without a computer can phone into this event. The event is on Thursday, June 3rd at 1:00pm. To register or for more information call Prince Edward Community Care at 613-476-7493.

The Gazette comes out on the morning of June 3rd so if you’re reading this before 1pm be sure to call the office to get the login credentials. Later in June we’re having Minister Cho, from the Ontario Ministry of Seniors & Accessibility, joining us for a webinar. The event is on Friday, June 18th at 2pm with MPP Todd Smith introducing Minister Cho. Watch this column for more details. We’re having many other interesting webinars and phone chats during June.

The golfers are back so we can’t have seniors going to The View to pick up.
