Activities for Seniors

Seniors contribute their time to many causes in the community and FCSS extends appreciation to our seniors in a variety of ways.  An annual Christmas recognition is held each year. We show our appreciation to seniors during Seniors Week each June with special luncheons held throughout the County.  FCSS is there to assist seniors with their applications for Alberta Seniors Benefits.

Summer activities are planned for youth of all ages.  The Free Summer Program for children aged 7 to 11 begins in July in Mallaig, Ashmont and Ferguson Flats.  There are plenty of outdoor activities, crafting, daily field trips and fun team building. These activities are perfect for kids looking to make new friendships, create memories, and add some fun and excitement to their summer.

During summer 2022, FCSS hosted Drive-in Movie Nights, U-Rock (find a rock) in Elk Point, Ashmont, Mallaig and St. Paul,  Science Day (Ferguson Flats), Mallaig Color Run, and a Block Party at the St. Paul Water Park.
