Calgary is celebrating Seniors' Week June 2 to 8, acknowledging the many contributions seniors make to our communities. Across Calgary, there will be various events including social gatherings, drop-in fitness classes, cultural celebrations and presentations.
Seniors’ Week is chance to acknowledge the difference seniors make in the lives of Calgarians every day. From supporting family members and friends to assisting charities and volunteering, seniors are deeply involved in our communities and their contributions benefit Calgarians of all ages.
