Richmond is taking its Seniors Week (June 1-7) celebrations online this year.

Held annually, the week celebrates seniors and their community contributions. Anyone aged 55 and up, along with their families, can engage in virtual activities offered by the city, Richmond Public Library and several community associations and societies.

“Seniors Week is a great opportunity to celebrate the contributions that are made by seniors throughout the city every day of the year,” says Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “While Seniors Week will look a little different this year because of COVID-19, staff have been working closely alongside community partners to offer a variety of recreational and educational opportunities to keep seniors in Richmond active and connected during this unprecedented time.”

To kick off the week, Brodie will give a greeting Monday at 10 a.m. Throughout the week, other activities include music, a virtual tea party for those aged 90+ and a virtual scavenger hunt.

Pre-registration is required for some activities. More details and registration information are available online at www.richmond.ca/seniorsweek.
