ACTIVE ADULTS: Enjoy a cup of tea in the garden

Seniors celebrated at South Surrey Recreation Centre

South Surrey Recreation Centre’s Intergenerational Garden has enjoyed several days of pampering and planting by volunteers and staff to prepare for our garden programs and visits.

If your school is exploring gardening, perhaps suggest a visit to enjoy our therapeutic garden. Daily visits from the hummingbirds, bunnies and friendly insects are a special reminder of how lucky we are to be a part of nature.

We are having our first Intergenerational Tea Time in the garden on Saturday, June 1 from 1-3 p.m. Enjoy refreshments and activities in a relaxing garden environment.

Registration is required. Call 604-592-6970 for information.

Help us celebrate Seniors Week this year from June 2 to 8.

All Surrey recreation centres will be offering weekly activities for free or minimal cost – from movies to fitness classes.

At South Surrey, we have wonderful free activities for our members, June 4-7. On June 6, we will have free tea and treats in the garden, 11 a.m. to noon.

The City of Surrey’s annual seniors conference, Aging in Place, will take place on May 31 at the Fleetwood Community Centre, 15996 84 Ave.

The event will focus on three key areas: healthy lifestyles, education advocacy and safety. There will be a selection of workshops, with keynote speaker Dr. Irving Rootman speaking on the role of health literacy.

Call 604-501-5100 or check our website at www.surrey.ca/seniors

The 55+ badminton players will kick off June with their annual in-house tournament on June 11. The tournament will be followed with the season’s first garden barbecue. This group meets every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for 55+ badminton and then a social coffee time each week.

Summer Leisure Guides will be available at the end of May – pick up your copy so you can plan your summer activities.

Terri Focker, a community service assistant for the City of Surrey, writes monthly on seniors activities.
