Everyone welcome for tea and cake on Sept. 20, from 3:30-4 p.m.

Information sessions are starting back up this month.

The first one is titled Stay on your feet: A fall prevention workshop.

Physiotherapist Brian de Leeuw from Vancouver Island Health Authority will present it Sept. 20, from 1:30-3:30 p.m. in the Ladysmith Seniors Centre within the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association, 630 – 2nd Ave.

The Coffee Drop-In is ongoing from 10 a.m. to noon on Mondays and Fridays.

Come in and have a visit, along with coffee or tea and cookies, with our friendly and personable volunteers.

Remember, we are here for you should you have any problems with government-issue forms, rent, transportation problems for medical appointments, inability to grocery shop for yourself, loneliness or if you just need someone to talk to.
