Programs and services for seniors

Intergenerational PEN-PALS

MEPEC will help to facilitate meaningful exchanges between school-aged children and seniors of our region to encourage literacy and social connections. MEPEC is therefore looking for 15 to 20 seniors participants.

You can choose how many children you would like to write to. The time commitment for each child would likely be between 30 minutes and 1 hour.

We have 3 teachers from the Riverside School Board interested in the letter-writing campaign.

Grade 2 – They want to perhaps write cards as their writing isn’t very developed currently. (English)
Grade 3 – They would participate if it can be done in French

Senior’s Sneakers

The Seniors Sneakers Program is for people 55 or older that want to keep active during the winter. The program starts on September 26th from 10:30 to 11:30 at the Legion in Otterburn Park. The classes will be with the instructor Tara McAleer, she is a Certified Athletic Therapist and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist who has been working since graduating from Concordia University. Her specialty involves assessing movement patterns, gait, and running mechanics and prescribing specific, individualized exercises to improve movement mechanics, decrease pain and enhance performance.

Registration fee is $10.00 MEPEC or Legion members and $100.00 for non-members.
