Seniors Advisory Council seeks new members

Nine-member panel seeks new members to aid them in continuing their work as seniors' advocates.

The Ladysmith Seniors Advisory Council is recruiting new members.

The nine-person panel of volunteers meets once each month for an hour and a half, said Sharen Newton, coordinator of the seniors’ office at the LRCA.

The LSAC “serves as an advocate for seniors in Ladysmith and the surounding area,” Newton said, and new members willing to “contribute their skills, expertise and wisdom in support of the social well-being of all seniors” are welcome to join.

Willing volunteers must apply, Newton added.

Volunteer application forms are available at the Ladysmith Resources Centre from 9 a.m. – 3:30 pm. Mondays through Fridays.
