Seniors’ Forum
Our community has the responsibility to ensure that the fundamental rights our seniors’ population under any and all health-care challenges are being met with compassion, dignity and respect.  However are you  aware that some services to seniors have been cut or are inadequate- they and their families are suffering as a result! Do you or a senior family member receive personal care or support through CCAC?  Do you have feedback or ideas for improving the delivery of these services? Have you had a personal support experience that you would like to share?  Come and share your experiences with us and let’s do something about this important issue.  See you at the Atrium Room - Oakville Town Hall - Saturday, September 27th from 1 pm to 4 pm.  Refreshments available.  For more information please contact Pearl Cameron at 416 768 2851 or email pearlcameron@sympatico.ca

The Serra Club of Halton welcomes new members  We come together monthly at Saint Dominic Parish in Oakville to promote and support  vocations to religious life.  We share Mass, a meal, have interesting speakers, and plan ways, as a group, to encourage young men and women to listen to God’s call.  While this helps others, it is also a wonderful opportunity to deepen our own walk with the Lord and strengthen our faith community.  SERRAN’s find ways to do this work in our everyday world of office, home, factory and family. Please join us for a meeting on Saturday, Sept 27th to learn more. Mass begins at 9 a.m. followed by breakfast. Please contact Garth Brown (VP Membership) at 416 459 2730 or garthbrown@sympatico.ca.
