Celebrating Seniors with a Month of Engaging Activities


June is Seniors Month in Ontario, and the valued contributions of this community is underscored by this year’s theme: working for seniors. The City of Welland is recognizing its senior residents with a range of activities, programs, and services to celebrate their achievements and enhance their quality of life.

City staff have designed a calendar of events tailored to the varied interests and needs of Welland’s senior population. From wellness programs and educational workshops to social gatherings and recreational activities, these offerings promote physical and mental well-being while providing opportunities for social connection and lifelong learning.

“Our seniors have laid the foundations of our community with their hard work and dedication,” said Fraser Mowat, recreation and culture coordinator. “Seniors Month is our opportunity to give back, showing our appreciation and ensuring they have the resources and support they need to thrive.”

To kick off the month, a flag-raising ceremony will be held at the Welland Community Centre at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4. Featuring light refreshments and live music by Pat Serre, this event symbolizes Welland’s commitment to ensuring seniors remain active, engaged, and respected members of the community.

The Seniors Month activity calendar is available at the Welland Community Centre, 145 Lincoln Street and online at https://www.facebook.com/wellandrecandculture.
