Invitation for seniors in the Ladysmith area to drop-in for a coffee

There’s a standing invitation for seniors in the Ladysmith area to drop-in for a coffee, a chat and some relaxing activities at the new LRCA Seniors’ Coffee Drop-In.

The get-togethers, which take place Mondays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to noon, are a new initiative by the LRCA Seniors Office. A grand opening will be held July 18, and seniors in the community are invited.

“The Coffee Drop-in began in late June and has seen several seniors come out to enjoy a cup of coffee – or tea – a snack and an opportunity to build relationships over conversation and games,” said Kate Wilton, LRCA program coordinator.

“The program is staffed by knowledgeable volunteers and no sign-up is required.”

Seniors in the community are invited to stop by the LRCA to see if the coffee drop-in is right for them. If transportation is a barrier, call Wilton at 250-245-3079.
