The Nord-Bridge Seniors Centre is ready to spread Christmas joy to its seniors. The Winter Wonderland Walk Through will take place on Friday from 1-3 PM. In order to come in you will have to bring a non-perishable food item for the Interfaith Food Bank. There will also be live music, drinks, and prizes. The Program Coordinator for Nord-Bridge, Ashley Kern, says that seniors are excited to be able to come back to the centre and enjoy some good company and Christmas cheer.
“We’ve already had a lot of good feedback just as we’ve been decorating. We have about 30 trees and they’re all just super excited to even see it now as is, never mind tomorrow. I think we’re going to get really good feedback from the community and seniors because a lot of them don’t decorate anymore in their own homes. It’s nice to come out and have that sense of community. Last year we did donate a few trees to the food bank. This year we’re going to actually donate a few more as well. They’ll be picking those up next week. We’re also donating the non-perishable food items back to them as well. Just to give back.”
Nord-Bridge is requiring seniors to be vaccinated as the centre falls under the Restriction Exemption Program.
