Seniors’ safety


Irene Vanderplaats, left, received a copy of the new seniors’ safety calendar from Gerri Yerxa, a geriatric mental health therapist with the local District Mental Health Services Older Adults Program, last Wednesday at Canada Safeway. Yerxa ended up giving out 200 of the calendars that day. The free calendar, which features safety tips for seniors as well as art by local students, is available at the Older Adults Program office at 414 Scott St.
