NORTH SHORE KEEP WELL CHALLENGES THE COMMUNITY TO SUPPORT THE ‘GO BUS’.
Keep Well has donated $300.00 to keep the ‘Go Bus’ on the road for one more day. This donation is a no-brainer says Heather Dunsford, who is speaking on behalf of the Keep Well society. It took the Board of Directors no time at all to reach the decision to support the ‘Go Bus’ as they recognize it is a vital resource in enabling seniors to access our programs. This decision was made despite the limited funds that are available to Keep Well.
Keep Well calls on the rest of the organizations who provide programs for seniors as well as members of the public whose clients and families make use of the ‘Go Bus’, to meet the challenge and keep the bus going for one more day.
North Shore Keep Well provides weekly exercise and wellness classes for seniors in 7 different locations across the North Shore, from Deep Cove to Gleneagles.
Annwen Loverin, Executive Director for Silver Harbour said she is delighted with this initiative and thinks it is a very creative way to bring about more support from the community for the ‘Go Bus’. For more information on how you can help, please contact Silver Harbour Seniors Activity Centre @ 604-980-2474.

What is a Zoomer?
"The population bubble that was the youth market 30 years ago is today, the market I've defined as Zoomers. They were a dominant generation then ... they remain a dominant generation today. Zoomers are a growing, vibrant and affluent community. They look at the world with optimism; they are engaged and aspire to enrich their lives and their communities".
