June 2018 marks the 34th annual Seniors’ Month in Ontario. The Ministry of Seniors Affairs has announced this year’s theme:
“Now’s the time to start something new,” which highlights how aging does not prevent any of us from leading fulfilling lives. Seniors continue to contribute to our community and we can all benefit from their wisdom, friendship, and experience.
If you would like to formally acknowledge an older adult (over 65) for their significant contributions to your community, consider nominating them for an Ontario Senior Achievement Award. Deadline for applications is June 15. For more information click here
