Pointe-Claire celebrates National Seniors Day
The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, is pleased to announce a special activity to celebrate National Seniors Day on Friday, September 29, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Arthur-Séguin chalet, located at 365 Saint-Louis Avenue.
“National Seniors Day is a chance for us to thank our seniors for their contribution to our community and for their role as mentors and leaders,” stated Mayor Trudeau.
Seniors are invited to attend this festive event featuring special guests, music, coffee, tea, and pastries.
The City of Pointe-Claire’s Aid for Seniors Program implements projects to help create strong ties between young and old and calls on young people in the community to participate and learn about the everyday lives of seniors and isolation.
To celebrate our seniors, a tree was planted in Arthur-Séguin Park as a symbol of this special day during a ceremony in which the mayor, members of City Council, seniors, and students at Lindsay Place High School took part.
“Planting a tree is a gesture that has a lasting impact, and the tree at Arthur-Séguin Park is a symbol of our gratitude to our seniors, their presence, their commitment, and of course their invaluable contribution,” said Mayor Trudeau.
During this ceremony, everyone present marked their participation by throwing a symbolic shovel of earth. Teens read a poem written by a student at the Aid for Seniors Program.
“Our seniors are the roots that help our community grow, much like roots allow trees to feed, stand tall, and flourish,” said Mayor Trudeau in conclusion.
Seniors can call 514-630-1214, extension 1644 to reserve their spot for the free event that will take place on Friday, September 29. Space is limited.
