November 8 - Glenburnie, ON – The County of Frontenac is organizing the Frontenac Seniors Expo, a one-stop event on aging well for seniors, their families and caregivers, on November 18 and 19 in Sydenham and Sharbot Lake.

The Frontenac Seniors Expo takes place at the Grace Centre in Sydenham on Friday November 18 between 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. and at the St. James Major Church in Sharbot Lake on Saturday November 19 between 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Admission is free with lunch provided.

“The County is pleased to support a plan for age-friendly communities in Frontenac so that residents can live fulfilled lives without having to locate to urban centres,” said County of Frontenac Warden Frances Smith.

Earlier this fall, the County of Frontenac retained MMM Group Limited, a WSP consulting company, to assist with the preparation of an Age-Friendly Community Action Plan. This project is funded by the Government of Ontario. An age-friendly action plan sets out a framework for a community to improve its age-friendliness and ensure all residents can remain active members of the community at every stage of life.
