Highlights of the Services to Seniors January meeting

Our January Services to Seniors meeting agenda was jam packed with three presentations:

Renee Strong
The first presenter, Renee Strong from Capilano Services Societies spoke about the Delbrook Lands Community Dialogue meeting to  discuss the future of Delbrook. The potential use of the lands is of interest to Capilano Services and the 8 organizations who reside at Delbrook. They could potentially be moved to another site before relocating to their future permanent home at the new Lionsgate Community Centre in the Lower Capilano area. For continuing information about the consultation go to www.dnv.org/delbrooklands.
