A “hearty” breakfast “among friends” at the Seniors’ Centre

A change in tone here.

The Bistro, the heart of the Seniors'entre and the focal point for many of the administrative problems. The new agreement with the city didn't resolve this problem but they have agreed to give it a year to come up with a solution that works for everyone.

The Bistro, the heart of the Seniors’ centre

There was a time when the seniors and the city administration were at loggerheads – the people representing the seniors were asked to vacate the office they had and the city took over.

Now there is an invitation to a “hearty” breakfast “among friends” at the Seniors’ Centre to celebrate community partners and their upcoming programming.

On Saturday, Sept. 14 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., the Breakfast @ the Bistro program will launch another exciting fall, winter and spring season where the monthly breakfast programs welcome the community to gather for a breakfast buffet followed by social time and entertainment. Community supporters who help to make this program possible will also be acknowledged.

Generous donations of time and funds offered by community partners including the Lions Club of Burlington, Revera Retirement Living, ComforCare and Bayshore Home Health will be recognized at the breakfast. The support provided by these sponsors helps to reduce the financial barriers that might otherwise prevent participation in Burlington Seniors’ Centre programming for some in our community.

The contribution of both financial support and volunteer time also allows the Burlington Seniors’ Centre to offer lively entertainment throughout the seasons such as Dixieland Plus, Silver Swing Band, Golden Horseshoe Women’s/Men’s Chorus along with Adult program choirs.

A good positive step – keep it up.
