A new SOS program in Qualicum Beach will help seniors meet new people, develop new friendships, and gain information on timely topics.
Seniors Connecting will run monthly at Qualicum Commons starting Sept. 11, offering seniors in Qualicum Beach and the surrounding areas an opportunity to enjoy social interaction, a light lunch and presentations.
Qualicum Beach residents who already attend the Parksville Seniors Connecting program will have the opportunity to stay in that group, or begin attending the Qualicum Beach program.
The group will meet Tuesdays from 11 am to 1 pm at Qualicum Commons, and transportation is available. The program is for residents aged 65 and over who live in Qualicum Beach, Coombs, Errington, French Creek, Whiskey Creek, Qualicum Bay and Bowser.
Call 250-752-2040 ext. 1 to register for the program. The group will meet September 11, October 23, November 13, December 11, January 8, 2019, February 12, and March 13 at the Qualicum Commons Library.
