Fall is almost here and that means its time for our monthly Community Meetings to begin.

But first we would like to thank everyone who participated in our recent surveys.From your replies you expressed a desire for more light hearted presentations. You also told us about the many serious issues facing seniors and we willintersperse our meetingsthroughout the year with speakers who will address these issues.

With that in mind and inkeeping with the time of year we think you will really enjoy our September presentations.

You are therefore invited to join us for our first community meeting of the 2014/15 season as we feature a Fall Special:

“Discover the Quality in Ontario Wine Country”

Wine Countryis in our backyard and is one of the jewels of Ontario tourism with Fall being one of the best times to enjoy it. Our speaker will have all the information you need and may even point out things you did not know.

You will also have the opportunity to sign up for a tour offered by Chapter Partner and one of our sponsors for this meeting, Canadian Christian Tours.They have planned a tour of the Niagara Region specially for us. They will have all of the details and will be ready to go if sufficient numbers are interested.

So please plan to join us at either Milton or Burlington and help us get our new season off to a good start.
