Seniors Week

Join the Fun as we Celebrate Seniors in our Community

Seniors Week: June 1-7 

Seniors of the community and everything they contribute will be celebrated by the Township of Langley during Seniors Week. From June 1 to 7, a variety of events, activities, and programs will be held throughout the Township to spotlight seniors and encourage those aged 50-plus to stay healthy, engaged, and active.

One of the highlights of the week will be the annual Senior’s Tea, an afternoon of socializing, refreshments, and live entertainment that has become a Seniors Week tradition. Presented in partnership with Chartwell Langley Gardens Retirement Residence, the Tea will be held Tuesday, June 4, from 1:00 to 3:00pm at the Aldergrove Kinsmen Community Centre.

Seniors who want to keep up their fitness or are looking for team activities will have plenty to explore, as a variety of sessions for all interests are offered throughout the community, each day of the week.

A Balance, Strength, and Stretch class will be offered, along with yoga, bocce ball, and walking hockey. Those who want to get in the pool can try aquafit or water walking, take a swimming lesson or learn how to swim lengths, and enjoy a special Swim and Tea event. Other activities will include a Fit for Life low-impact class with weights and stretching and a Horseshoe Tournament.

As well, a Spring Hop Dance will be held Thursday, June 6, from 1:00 to 3:00pm, at West Langley Hall, 9400 – 208 Street, for partners and singles wanting to dance and socialize. Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door.
