Garden City Community Centre Seniors/55+ Program
Garden City Community Centre is pleased to offer programming for Seniors/55+ Retirees in the Seven Oaks area. The Seniors/55+ Program was established to help create affordable activity for Seniors and Retirees in our community. By offering exercise, dance, yoga, and various gaming activities we hope to improve the overall mental and physical health of our participants. Participants are encouraged to help lead and promote the program by teaching and assisting new participants, car pooling, and positive reinforcement.
The Program is guided by our Seniors/55+ Council which is comprised of Seniors currently active in the Program. The Council's mandate is to ensure quality programming which meets the needs of our area and its participants.
For general information about the program please contact Margie Reis, Program Coordinator Garden City Community Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org
