Wednesday, Sep 20 at 11 am would be a great time to come out and present any concerns you might have to the mayor. Or you might just want to come in support of other Seniors voicing their concerns.

August 19, 2017 – Seniors Centre Matters
Summer is rapidly coming to a close and you may be wondering what is going to happen at the Seniors Centre this Fall. The familiar “Squamish Seniors Centre” name was replaced by a unilateral decision made by DOS Council at their July 18 meeting. You can watch the Council meeting proceedings here (only about 6 minutes) – the minutes of that meeting are still not available.
The new name had never before seen the light of day; it was chosen by Council without consulting the Seniors of Squamish, the Seniors Centre Advisory Board or the Revitalization Committee. What follows is a Seniors Centre related news release provided by the District on August 18. For the full text of this communication click here.
