Sundre council proclaims upcoming Senior’s Week

Town of Sundre joins provincewide effort to celebrate and recognize contributions of elder Albertans past and present

SUNDRE – Linda Nelson, chief administrative officer, recently read aloud to council a request for decision regarding a resolution to proclaim June 5-11 Seniors’ Week.

According to the provincial government’s website, Seniors’ Week has been observed annually in Alberta since 1986 to both celebrate as well as recognize the contributions of seniors who enhance the quality of life in their communities and throughout the province.

The initiative was originally inspired by the vision of the late Alice Modin, who more than 30 years ago launched a campaign to begin a seniors’ day in Strathcona County that ended up helping to set the stage for today’s province-wide initiative.   

During a regular meeting, council unanimously carried a motion proclaiming June 5-11 as Senior’s Week in the Town of Sundre.
