Seniors speaker series launches in Gordon Head

Connecting Seniors Project includes talks from Alzheimer's Society of B.C., LifeCycles Project Society

A Saanich group has created a weekly speaker series for seniors dubbed 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 sessions are free and are followed by complimentary tea, coffee and snacks.

Talks are not limited to Gordon Head residents, but are open to interested parties throughout the Capital Region.

Visit the upcoming list of guest speakers at gordonheadunitedchurch.com or email coordinator Carlen MacDonald at ghuccs1@telus.net for more information.
