We can all think of a senior who has made a difference in our lives. They are our mentors, teachers, grandparents and loved ones. They are our volunteers and role models. They have contributed generously, building our families, communities, workplaces and country.
Every day, senior’s right here in Vaughan make a big difference in our community.
On October 1, National Seniors Day, let’s take the time to celebrate local seniors and show our appreciation for everything they do.
Our government is proud of Canada’s seniors. We value what they have done for our country, and they deserve our thanks. National Seniors Day is our time to join together as a nation to honour Canada’s seniors.
Through their commitment to remain active, engaged and informed, seniors across the country are demonstrating to Canadians of all ages exactly what it means to age well and we are all benefiting from their ongoing contributions.
As your Member of Parliament, I encourage you to find your own unique way to celebrate the seniors in your life. Perhaps send a simple thank-you note to a senior you know.
However you choose to express your gratitude, the message that we value older Canadians will be heard – and appreciated.
