Join us at the Chelsea Seniors’ Lunch

Come join friends, new and old, at the St Mary Magdalene Church Hall (537 Route 105) each third Wednesday of the month (September to May). For $8 you are treated to a home cooked 3 course lunch plus coffee or tea. The fun starts at 12:00 pm. 

 

On Wednesday October 14, a seniors' outing was held in the Pontiac, organized by the Municipality of Chelsea. At the Spruceholme Home we had the chance to learn more about the period of wood cutting. At the Stone School Gallery we visited the exposition and finally at the Coronation Hall Cider Mills we had a tour of the installations and some cider tasting. Thank you to all participants for the wonderful day!

          

 

PREAMBLE – THE VISION FOR CHELSEA’S SENIORS’ POLICY

 

Life in Chelsea means living in a community where you can maintain or improve your quality of life, get access to information easily, find services and programmes that are useful and relevant, and involve yourself in community projects and initiatives that interest you. Living in Chelsea means enjoying a semi rural environment in a municipality that welcomes citizens of all ages, and that acknowledges and respects the contribution of every one of them.

 

MAIN GOAL

 

Our goal is to develop a policy that spells out the role of the Municipality in meeting the needs and aspirations of seniors, whether directly or in partnership with other government agencies, institutions or community groups. A new policy was adopted October 5 2015 replacing the one from 2012.

Looking forward to seeing on Tuesday, October 25th at 10:15 am at the Meredith Centre for the Senior’s Policy and Action Plan public launch.
