Recreation and Community Centres

Being engaged and active is important at any age, and especially so after retirement. In addition, social contact and friendships reduce the isolation felt by many seniors. Through participation in activities and events, their lives retain meaning and value; seniors have a lifetime of knowledge to contribute to their communities.
