June is Seniors Month 2012 Celebrate. Participate

May 31, 2012 - Ontario Seniors’ Secretariat - June is Seniors’ Month in Ontario, a great time for seniors to celebrate their lives and the many ways they continue to make our province a better place to live.

Ontario’s 2012 theme - Celebrate. Participate. - encourages older adults to stay active in their communities and reminds us all to honour the seniors in our lives.

The theme also creates momentum for the upcoming Ontario 55+ Summer Games, taking place this August in Brampton. The games will attract active seniors from across the province to compete in a wide range of sports, from tennis and pickleball to cribbage and euchre.

June is also Recreation and Parks Month, and for the second year in a row, the Ontario Seniors’ Secretariat is partnering with Parks and Recreation Ontario for our June celebrations.

I encourage Ontarians across the province to attend Seniors’ Month events. These include award ceremonies, recognition events, socials and seniors’ information fairs.
