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.
