A Saanich group has created a weekly speaking series for seniors, the Gordon Head Connecting Seniors Project.

The weekly sessions feature informative guest speakers and run Thursdays from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Gordon Head United Church.

This week’s guest (Sept 11) is Jeanette Sheehy from Victoria’s LifeCycles Project. Sheehy will explain LifeCycle’s community-health initiative that connects people with their local food and the land it comes from.

Larry Howe of the Alzheimer’s Society of B.C. led a talk called “Getting to know dementia” on Sept. 2.

The session is free and is followed by complimentary tea, coffee and snacks.

The sessions are not limited to Gordon Head residents, and are open to interested parties throughout the region.

Visit the upcoming list of guest speakers here at the Gordon Head United Church website or email coordinator Carlen MacDonald at ghuccs1@telus.net for more information.
