2024 Seniors Month in Centre Wellington

CENTRE WELLINGTON: June is Seniors Month in Ontario, and the theme for 2024 is “Working for Seniors”. It’s a time to celebrate our seniors and recognize all the hard work and amazing contributions they have made in our communities and all the lives they have impacted. Centre Wellington’s senior population is rich, and this month is dedicated to recognizing and celebrating them.

Do you know any seniors over the age of 65 who have made a positive and lasting impact in our community? The Government of Ontario is accepting nominations for the Ontario Senior Achievement Award to recognize seniors who, after 65, have enriched the social, cultural or civic life of the community. If you have a senior in mind, be sure to nominate them today!

Several special events have been planned to celebrate seniors during the month of June! All events will be held at the Victoria Park Seniors Centre in Fergus.
