– By Norma Khandaker –
The St. James Town Community Corner’s Seniors Day Program completed 9 years of programming in November. Folks celebrated the milestone with a week of festivities where they reminisced about the past, listened to music, enjoyed good food and had tons of fun.
Over the years, the program’s services were expanded with the help of various community partners. This allowed participants to enjoy outdoor activities and above all – create a strong group of friends who care for one another.
Many made testimonials stating what the program means to them:
- “This was the family I never had.” — Wayne
- “The Seniors program changed my life from depression and loneliness to happiness and fun.” — Femmie
- “I enjoy leaving my apartment to meet my friends and to be part of the community.” — Theresa
- “It’s not only attending the program that I really love, but it is also the strong supports provided by the staff.” — Maryam
Congrats to everyone involved with the Seniors Day Program!
