Hello Neighbour – We’d like to meet you!

As part of our 10 Year Anniversary celebrations, SWESA completed its “Hello Neighbour – We’d like to meet you!” project. This project supported social participation and inclusion of all older adults in our community – and it promoted volunteerism. We hosted a number of events as part of this project that spanned from June to October, 2022. The project wrap-up meeting was held on November 9, 2022.
