Senior Citizen is a common expression to describe someone over the age of 65, and is now commonly used instead of old person, old age pensioner or the elderly. We trust this change is out of respect.
That said, the Hardy Bay Seniors Citizen’s Society offers membership from 19 years and up.
We recognize that the Senior Citizen does not stand alone any more than the youth does. We are all connected from birth to death. This connection is healthy and desirable for the senior citizen.
We want to bring attention to the need for new members to the Hardy Bay Seniors Citizen’s Society and, for those who do not understand the Society, will give you a few facts about the group:
It is a group founded many years ago to support and maintain a common meeting place where the Senior Citizen could attend and have fun! At this time, the meeting place is the building next door to the Hospital/Ambulance Service and, now, the New Port Hardy Medical Centre. It was the old Port Hardy Hospital.
Hours of operations vary depending on the events but generally it is open Monday through Friday, noon-5 p.m. Tuesdays, we bring our lunch and enjoy tea and coffee with good conversation. The third Wednesday of the month a Pot Luck Dinner is held at 6 p.m. followed by an informative meeting letting the members know what has happen and what will be going on.
The building and site has been improved over the years from the generous support of the community as well as the endless number of volunteers at the centre. It is a good building and houses a mini exercise room, small library, TV room, computer room, pool room and community kitchen.
As the community changes so does the number of Senior Citizens.
