On Friday November 2nd, the Niagara Falls Age Friendly Community Initiative is coming to the Victoria Avenue Library from 9am to 12. Don’t know anything about age-friendly? This will be an opportunity to learn more about the age-friendly movement across Niagara. Everyone is welcome - caregivers, service providers and those 50yrs+ or not. Niagara has joined a global effort led by the World Health Organization to become an age-friendly community. The goal is to create safe and secure environments that foster community participation, personal health and well-being. Local committees are being formed to identify and start age-friendly activities specific to their local community's needs. Input and ideas from residents are key to the success of the project. Join our Age-Friendly Planning Session: Talk to Action. We know you will not want to miss this opportunity to make a difference. Light refreshments will be served.
The Philosophers Café meets again Monday November 5th, 7pm in the Rosberg Gallery. This month the theme for discussion is “Bullying – what is it and should it be criminalized?” The discussion is free and open to all. No registration is required.
