June is Seniors Month in Ontario! The theme for 2023 is Working for Seniors - a time to recognize the hard work seniors have done all their lives to make Ontario into the great place it is today.

We've got lots on the go this June, including great workshops and seminars, crafts and activities - even a Pickleball Drop-in at the Peggy Hill Team Community Centre!
