Pub Night Kicks off New Event Series Targeting Active Older Adults

Bow Cliff Centre held a Wine & Cheese Social Focus Group on February 28th, with great feedback from attendees.

The group identified two categories: the things that scare us, and the things that we are looking forward to in retirement.

The things that scare us were centred around mobility, loneliness, and access to services. The things we look forward to were around socializing, learning, staying active.

The following video summarizes the need for this Focus Group, and some of the incentives Bow Cliff is initiating to bridge the gap in services for older adults.

We are welcoming all in the 40+ crowd to come out and enjoy our first event: Pub Night, held on March 18th. Tickets are on sale now, see below!
