Press Release – A New Seniors’ Directory Launched in Brome Lake
For immediate publication
Brome Lake, October 1, 2019 — On this National Seniors Day, the Town of Brome Lake is proud to unveil its brand new Seniors’ Directory, a 50-page document containing contact information for a number of useful resources available in the area.
Also developed by the Age-Friendly Municipality Committee, the new resource is available in both languages. It covers all aspects of life in the third age and is expected to evolve over time, in part through the collaboration of local community partners.
“There are many resources in the area, so much so that it can sometimes be difficult to find what you’re looking for. This guide will simplify the search, while promoting several organizations or self-employed workers involved with seniors,” explains Cynthia Brunelle, Director of the Recreation, Tourism, Culture and Community Life Department.
“Seniors represent an important part of our population base. It is essential to ensure their well-being and development. The release of this directory is one of them,” says Richard Burcombe, Mayor of Brome Lake.
The Town of Brome Lake also held an Open House on the first day of October. About a hundred visitors benefited from the valuable advice of the twenty or so exhibitors who came to the Centre Lac-Brome.
The Seniors’ Directory can be accessed on the Town of Brome Lake’s website in the Age-Friendly Municipality section (ville.lac-brome.qc.ca/age-friendly-municipality-mada). Hard copies can also be picked up at the Centre Lac-Brome (270 Victoria Street).
