When the Tri-Cities Seniors’ Action Society recently hosted a World Elder Abuse Awareness Day event on June 15 at Town Centre Park in Coquitlam, the community came out to show its support and interest. Thank you to Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart for showing up to show your support and the support from the city. And thank you also to MLA Fin Donnelly for dropping by to show your support and the support from the province.
As the seniors’ and seniors’ caregivers dropped by to pick-up their free swag bag items and gather information about elder abuse, we also had a nice visit and talk with Coquitlam Assistant Fire Chief Chris Fox. Not long after we also had a drop-in visit from the Port Moody Fire/Rescue team, including the new Fire Chief Darcey O’Riordan. Thank you for your support — and yes, we’ll be out for the Pancake Breakfast on July 2 and 3 at the Inlet Fire Station.
This is community support! Kudos to our Tri-Cities community for your support and demonstrating that we are a caring and supportive community.
