What is seniors week?

Seniors' Week is to acknowledge seniors' contributions which benefit residents of all ages in our communities. In Chestermere, seniors are at the heart of our community and make up a large portion of volunteers who work in charitable organisations and community programs improving the quality of life for many people.
