Grace Village's "Resources For Seniors" Seminar Series

Information & Resources To Help Seniors And Their Families

As part of our commitment to truly Making A Difference in the lives of our residents and the seniors of our community, Grace Village is pleased to launch a series of seniors-oriented information seminars in support of our own residents, their families and the seniors of the community.  This series will be presented in English - French seminars can be planned based on demand - in partnership with a variety of key community resources. We will benefit from ongoing participation by Wade Lynch of Bishop's University and the Bishop's Seniors Academy for Lifelong Learning (SALL) where he is Director. You can use the form below to submit questions or suggest topics of interest for future seminars.

These seminars will be held at 6:30PM on the last Tuesday of each month, in Grace Village's Grand Hall. There is no charge but if the seminar is of value to you we would appreciate a small donation from each attendee following the seminar, e.g. $5, to cover the costs of the refreshments and facility cleanup.
