Come help us celebrate!
June is Seniors month and designated to give special recognition to a very important part of society. To celebrate Seniors month, the 10th annual United Way Bruce Grey Seniors’ Fair will be held on Wednesday, June 7th, 2017 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the fully accessible Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre in Owen Sound.
Forcier Grant’s Exclusive sponsorship has paid the way for all day, free Owen Sound City busing anywhere in the city!
Gold sponsors include
Revera: The Village in Hanover, Summit Place in Owen Sound, and Trillium in Kincardine. Hanover Holidays, and Physiotherapy III
The Bayshore will be filled with over 85 exhibitors, including over 50 government and non profit organizations who focus on services, products, care and support available to help seniors in Bruce and Grey Counties lead happy, healthy, active and independent lives. Each year we build on the successes of the previous years and there’s a lot of new exhibits and displays for 2017.
The special “hands on” room will take place and everything from essential oils, to blood pressure checks, to reflexology
There are many new exhibitors taking part this year, along with many who have been a part of the event for 10 years too.
The focus and the information is directed towards Seniors but in the past we have welcomed all ages there accompanying seniors, or browsing for the most up-to-date information available by organizations, government departments and businesses.
The event has become something many seniors their families, friends and caregivers look forward to each year. Doors will open at 9:45 a.m. and 300 flowers, and special Welcome Bags will be handed out throughout the day.
In the past the event was recognized by the Minister for Seniors Affairs noting this event as something very special for those that attend in Grey and Bruce counties.
