Seniors and their friends and families are invited to a day of fun activities and informative vendor tables at the fifth annual Kootenay Seniors Fair. The fair is being held Friday at the Prestige Lakeside Resort in Nelson. Doors open at 10 a.m. and the event runs until 3 p.m. Admission and all activities and services are free.
In addition to 40-plus community services vendors, there will be on-site health services including hearing screening, foot care check-ups, and massage. The day will also include fun activities like chair yoga and tai chi, and a café area where attendees can visit with friends and enjoy free pastries and a cup of coffee or tea.
There will also be great door prizes donated by local merchants and artisans. This year there’s something extra for the senior fellas — Jesse from Windsor Barber is setting up shop for the day and giving free haircuts.
Organizers can help with transportation to and from the Seniors Fair with help from Kootenay Carshare. Call 778-463-5247 to arrange a ride.
