Quadra Seniors
Get ready for a big October celebration!
Imagine picking ALL the right numbers and winning! Grants are like lotteries. If you present the right words, in the right way – you win. Well, Quadra Circle won a big one!
Quadra Circle partnered with People for a Healthy Community on Gabriola Island and have been awarded a large grant from Island Health's Community Action Initiative funding. As one of only 16 projects selected in BC, we will run a collaborative project for Seniors and Caregivers called “Islanders Stepping Up, Stepping Out – Staying Active and Engaged”.
This 18-month grant will fund a project on Quadra and Gabriola designed to get Seniors together on each island in a wide variety of activities to promote their physical and emotional well-being. Caregivers and support persons for Seniors will also benefit from the programs.
We're celebrating our big win with an Open House on Wednesday, October 5, 2016 at Quadra School between 9:30 am - 3pm. We'll showcase our vision, program activities and opportunities available for Quadra seniors and caregivers. Join us for snacks, try out activities, watch the movie Marinoni, Fire in the Frame about Canada's amazing cycling senior and 'philosopher of life'. Get motivated for your own wellness journey.
