OTF grant helps Life After Fifty make its auditorium more accessible
 
Life After Fifty works towards enriching the lives of older adults by providing opportunities to be fit, well and social. In 2019, Life After Fifty, LAF was awarded a Capital Grant of $57,900 from Ontario Trillium Foundation, OTF to support upgrades to their 635 McEwan location.
 
Recognizing the OTF grant, Lisa Gretzky, MPP for Windsor West stated, The work Life After Fifty does in our community is well known, vital and always deeply appreciated,” said Windsor West MPP Lisa Gretzky. “This generous grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation to improve accessibility to the west-end facility will be most appreciated as the restrictions end and it reopens as a busy centre of activity for our older residents.”
 
The work was completed in 2020 with the goal of enhancing accessibility in the auditorium. Improvements included the addition of automatic, doors to the centre’s auditorium, as well as brighter LED lighting, a new sound system to clearly amplify voices, a stage to enhance visibility of instructors, new chairs appropriate for seated exercise classes, and a fresh coat of paint using a colour scheme chosen by LAF members, themselves.
