As the community prepares to celebrate Seniors' Week from June 5 to 11

Heart Haven Lodge celebrates its seniors

Heart Haven Lodge brought all its staff members and residents together on May 19 for the Seniors' Week proclamation.

Taking advantage of the sunny weather, Heart Haven Lodge brought all its staff members and residents together as the Mayor and Reeve signed a proclamation for the Seniors’ Week on Friday, May 19.

Although Seniors’ Week is not until June 5, Heart Haven Lodge made use of the occasion and did a dual celebration of Canada 150 too.

“Every three years it is Heart Haven’s turn for proclamation to Seniors’ Week with the Mayor and Reeve and because it is Canada’s 150 we purchased coats with our recycle money,” Kris Coolen, head coordinator for activities at all three lodges, said. “Doug Smith at I.D. Apparel found us a great price on our jackets and Atco very generously provided us with their bucket truck for a group shot.”

All three lodges will be celebrating and hosting activities for the seniors during the week.

Coolen said that on Friday, June 2, from 2 to 4 p.m., Pat Hamilton of Heartland Victim Services will be co-hosting with all three lodges Heart Haven, Willow Creek and Paragon Place a Safe4Life course, targeted towards 55 plus demographic.

“It is a safety training and self defence skills course,” Coolen added. “Then from June 5 to 7, our three lodges will be presented with fruit trays from the Town and County, and on Tuesday, June 6, each lodge will have a guest speaker from Helping Hands to explain the senior care programs.”

On Thursday, June 8, each lodge will be hosting two suppers for residents and their invited guests for the Seniors’ Week.

“The weekly celebrations will culminate on Friday, June 9 with all three lodges coming together at Willow Creek for an afternoon of music and fellowship,” Coolen said. “As activity coordinators we are always looking for fun and new ways to spend time with our seniors. This July, I complete 28 years with the County of Stettler Housing Authority and I believe we provide fantastic care to our seniors.”
