CHARLES TWEED/Ponoka News
Get ready to sing, dance and maybe even learn a little as Ponoka Family and Community Support Services is sponsoring this year’s Seniors’ Wellness Conference, titled Rejuvenate on June 9 from 3 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Kinsmen Community Centre.
The afternoon will feature several presentations ranging from health and nutrition to financial planning. After the presentations the conference breaks for supper and an opportunity for businesses to set up a mini trade fair geared toward seniors. Then the event will feature its main attraction.
“Our keynote speaker is semi-retired radio personality Colin MacLean and he will be doing a presentation called Old Age Ain’t for Sissies. He was the former host of the Reach for the Top program and he is well known and well-travelled. It should be a lighthearted presentation,” said Ponoka FCSS executive director Wes Amendt.
After MacLean wraps up, the conference shifts gears as the group HOJA provides entertainment.
“They are an a cappella group and are well-travelled throughout Western Canada,” said Amendt. “If you haven’t seen this group you are sure to be wowed. They are three guys who go out there and put on a lively and terrific performance.”
FCSS is asking anyone interested in the event to register as the conference will accommodate only 100 patrons.
“There is a little bit of education, a little bit of sit back and enjoy yourself for the evening and a chance to take in some information from businesses and organizations that have services for seniors.”
