Residents are invited to join at 10:00 am for a warm welcome by Mayor Peter Milobar and Councillor Pat Wallace.
In addition to the tea and social there will opportunities where seniors can watch or try some physical activity and sport demonstrations such as Tai Chi, Pickleball and Table Tennis. There will also be information booths from Interior Health - Flu Clinics and Home Health, United Way - Access Kamloops, Seniors Advisory Committee, and Keep on Moving.

"By attending Seniors Day, my goal is to encourage dialogue with seniors while they are still active on how to set-up their homes, how to stay active safely, and how to access our programming," said Karen Cooper, Practice Lead for Physiotherapy in Home Health with Interior Health, who will be in attendance at National Seniors Day.
