Seniors in Clarence-Rockland will receive financial support to replace equipment and conduct facility renovations to get their project off the ground, announced Francis Drouin, Member of Parliament for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell, on behalf of the Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development.

The New Horizons for Seniors Program promotes positive aging by supporting seniors’ volunteerism and encouraging seniors to play an active role in their communities. This innovative program enhances seniors’ social well-being and enables them to maintain social ties and share their knowledge, skills and experience with others.

St-Andrew’s Christian Church is receiving $24,020 for its project funded through the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP). The project will help St-Andrew’s Christian Church make improvements to Pangborn Hall to further their commitment to provide a welcoming and safe meeting place where Rockland seniors can improve upon their quality of life. These projects include: the purchase of a new refrigerator for the kitchen, the repair of exterior brick work, the purchase of a sign to promote the Seniors group’s activities and the widening of the exterior concrete ramp to improve Pangborn Hall’s accessibility.
