Seniors and Youth Programming
We offer Stress Busters, an informal, weekly drop-in for seniors every Tuesday from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Come join us for coffee, crafts or just to talk.
Those 55+ or with mobility issues can take advantage of our Yard Works and Snow Bank programs. We match up youth and other neighbourhood volunteers with residents who need assistance with basic yard maintenance or snow clearing. To find out more about these seasonal programs contact our Safety and Wellbeing Coordinator.
Other DMSMCA programming of interest to seniors can be found by following our Facebook page or signing up for our Community News Digest.
