The St. James Town Seniors Forum is an annual event organised for the seniors in the neigbourhood. For this years annual event on the 17th of June, The Older Adult Consortium, a sub committee within the St. James Town Service Provider’s Network put together a program which included workshops, entertainment, food, and fun!
Over 60 seniors from the community from various backgrounds attended the event to interact with their peer and to hear from the different agencies that came out to provide informational workshops on old age health. The main aim of the program is to be able to provide opportunities for creating social connections and link seniors with appropriate services that they require.
With the help of community members, organizations, and volunteers, the annual event continues to be a success as the seniors have expressed great joy in being able to be part of the process in creating and planning for the event. This year, the program did experience low attendance owing to the Raptors victory rally on the same day.
