On Monday October 2nd, our Outreach Services had reason to celebrate! 

Caesars Windsor announced a corporate gift of $20,000 to the United Way Windsor-Essex during the Cupcake Social at the Raymond DesMarais Manor in Windsor. Caesars Windsor HERO volunteers joined in the fun and decorated cupcakes with the seniors who regularly attend the programs offered by Life After Fifty. LAF's Outreach Services are funded by the United Way.

The Outreach Program is called "Promoting Seniors Independence".  Both Tahira and Meghan provide colaboative outreach services to seniors in Windsor-Essex with the aim to reduce and prevent:  social isolation, loss of support networks, physical mobility, and other health and mental health issues that seniors experience due to aging.  Workshops offer an array of fun and interesting educational, recreational, physical and social activities.

Singing our True Colours!

Singing our True Colours!
Posted October 10, 2017
On Friday September 29, our Life After Fifty Choir performed with the John Campbell PS during the celebration of the Windsor-Essex International Day of Older Persons.

What started out as a chilly new Fall day, turned quite warm with the sun shining on us.  The ceremony was MC'd by Larry Duffield of CARP Windsor.  In addition to our singing, we were entertained by the Diplomats Drum and Bugle team -  they looked marvelous too in their tuxedos with gold trim cummerbunds and flag dance team.   We were touched by the speeches from young people who spoke on the love and caring they have for their grandparents.  

Following the ceremony we had a light lunch at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church with the organizers, contributers, and audience.   

A big thank you to CARP, The City of Windsor, Age Friendly Windsor and other organizations for bringing us together. 
 

Our choir has a great time performing and we would like everyone to hear us sing!  Join us for our Fall concert on October 21 at 2:00 at our West Side Centre - tickets are only $15.00. Call (519) 254-1108 to order.
