A national day to highlight the contribution of seniors to the community

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, and the members of City Council took the opportunity to show their appreciation and support for seniors, true pillars of the community, on National Seniors Day.

“Each and every one of them has helped build the community that unites us today in Pointe-Claire, and they will continue to do so. They are volunteers, leaders, and dynamic and committed people that allow us to grow and evolve together,” stated Mayor Belvedere.

To thank seniors and highlight their contribution, the Aid for Seniors Program organized a special event on Friday, September 28 at the Arthur-Séguin Chalet. Together, participants enjoyed a festive afternoon with special guests, music, and treats. A collective art project created by a group of seniors and students at Lindsay Place High School, in collaboration with the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre, was also unveiled during the event.

“Creating strong ties between young and old is at the heart of the Aid for Seniors Program and helps foster discussion, as well as raise awareness among our youth about the realities our seniors face. It is also a chance for seniors to share their knowledge and feel less isolated,” said the mayor of Pointe-Claire in conclusion.
