Legion Honours Seniors in Fenelon Falls (June, 2015)

June 8, 2015

Seniorslunch

The month of June is Seniors’ month in Ontario. The Royal Canada Legion, Branch 238 Fenelon Falls is hosting its eighth free seniors’ luncheon. Their goal is to honour the senior citizens of Fenelon Falls in recognition of the contributions they have made and continue to make in keeping our community strong and prosperous. Seniors play important and vital roles in our individual families, in our communities and in our country.

Many of the events that take place in Fenelon Falls have organizing committees that are heavily weighted with seniors who share their skills and experience for the benefit of their community.

“The luncheon will celebrate our local seniors letting them know just how important they are to us and provide them with an opportunity to gather and socialize,” advises Arlene Colman. “Entertainment by Belinda Wilson has been such a hit in previous years and we are very pleased to have her back again this year for your toe-tapping pleasure.”

The luncheon is for seniors in the community of Fenelon Falls who are 65 years of age and older. This is an opportunity for local seniors to meet old friends, make some new friends, enjoy a meal and entertainment. Seniors with special needs are encouraged to attend and we will do our best to accommodate. Community Care has generously volunteered to provide transportation where required.

The luncheon will take place Tuesday, June 16th starting at noon. Doors open at 11:30am. Attendance is limited to 120 and registration is required. Call Arlene Colman at 705-454-1849 and confirm your attendance today. The seats tend to fill up quickly, so call early to avoid disappointment.

The seniors of Fenelon Falls play key roles in supporting families and friends, volunteering with charities, churches and service clubs. Their contributions are a wonderful reminder to all of us that we can make a positive difference in our Village and in the lives of others post 65.

Fenelon Seniors have worked hard and continue to contribute much to the prosperity we all enjoy today. This is the Branch’s way of saying “Thank You” to the seniors of Fenelon Falls.

The Fenelon Falls Legion, Branch 238, supports the community by giving back monies that they raise through fundraising efforts.

On April 1st, Cde Jackie Walter presented a cheque for $1000 to Phong Tan in support of the Walk-in Clinic in his PharmaSave Pharmacy in the village of Fenelon Falls.

The walk-in clinic is open every Friday from 9 to noon, and patients are seen on a first come first served basis. The clinic is part of the services provided by the Kawartha North Family Health Team. Founded in 2006, the Kawartha North Family Health Team is composed of physicians, nurse practitioners, and registered nursing staff who are further supported by highly dedicated clinic coordinators and an array of allied health professionals. The team practices from locations in Fenelon Falls and Bobcaygeon.

The Fenelon Falls Legion continually supports community endeavours such as this, to the sum of $20,000 last year. They are a vital part of our community that helps to make our town a better place to live.
