Seniors invited to drop in

Renovations are finished and the Seniors Drop-in Program is back home at Saddle Mountain Place in Lumby.

Seniors Drop-in, open to everyone, runs Monday, Wednesday and Friday with activities in the morning and a hot lunch for $5 at noon. There is a volunteer who will take the lunches to people who can’t get out and there are some rides available to the centre for activities.

The centre itself is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week for coffee, cards, Scrabble and visiting. There is a potluck lunch and bingo on Sundays.

“We really like the way the space has been updated and especially the larger kitchen,” said Colleen Hazeldine, Seniors Drop-in Program facilitator.

“We have interesting speakers and once a month there is Wellness Day, with someone who checks blood pressure and weight. The new housing units have just opened and there are still some units available to people 55+ or with disabilities.”
