The new location of the Community Care for Seniors Association was officially opened at 74 King St., Picton on Tuesday.

“We were so pleased to see so many seniors, clients, volunteers, supporters and friends stop by to help us celebrate the new space,” said Debbie MacDonald Moynes, executive director. “Many people asked questions about the services that are available to help seniors live at home.”

The move to the former health unit building gives Community Care more space for programming and the new location is surrounded by free municipal parking.

Community Care’s board chairman Margaret Werkhoven was also in attendance along with representatives from government levels and local agency representatives.

“It was a special celebration to mark the new location but Community Care is happy to talk to potential clients and volunteers anytime,” said MacDonald Moynes.
