Lots of activities in Castor for Seniors’ Week

A wrap-up of events

By Kevin Sabo For the Advance

It has been a busy week for seniors in Castor.

Castor’s Paintearth Lodge hosted a pancake breakfast to kick off seniors week. After the breakfast lodge residents and community members gathered outside to listen to Mayor Richard Elhard read the proclamation of seniors week, and then release a gaggle of balloons in celebration.

Mandy Fuller of the Castor FCSS hosted RCMP Constable Trevor Voyer of the Coronation detachment at the Golden Circle to talk about fraud of all types, and how to report suspected fraud (Call Coronation detachment during business hours at 403- 578-3622 or the Canadian anti-fraud centre at 1-888-495-8501).

Paintearth Adult Learning in Castor by Leanne Lougheed and RN Paula Doolaege gave a discussion on how to improve diet habits, and what prevents people from eating healthier.

There wasatea and bake sale at the lodge.

Leanne Lougheed hosted some seniors at the curling arena, where pickle ball (think a mix of tennis and volleyball) courts have been set up and will be open to the public all summer. Leanne is looking at hosting an evening a week for people to come down and play, however the courts will be accessible anytime, people will just have to get the curling rink key from the town office and leave some sort of security (think drivers licence or credit card) which can then be collected when the key is returned.
