Celebrating seniors

Chronicle Letters to the editor

Editor:

Saturday, Oct.1 was National Seniors Day. The B.C. Care Providers Association marked the occasion by presenting seniors care providers at a special event in Richmond with the Hon. Alice Wong, Minister of State for Seniors. Wong said, “National Seniors Day is an occasion for all Canadians to appreciate and celebrate seniors. Canada’s seniors dedicated their lives to our country — they deserve our thanks as they continue to be influential mentors and leaders in our community.”

Here in Ladysmith, in order to recognize this day and to show appreciation to our honoured senior citizens, the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association hosted a luncheon in the new seniors centre. We were absolutely delighted that so many came out and we would like to thank all who attended for being part of the special day. We hope to make this an annual event and look forward to assisting and supporting our seniors in every way possible in the coming year.
