Our town is celebrating the impact seniors have on our town this week.

Seniors Week is from June 5 until the 11 with a bunch of great activities.

"It's a chance to celebrate the contribution of all the seniors and what they do for our community. It's a great chance to get out and have some fun for our seniors (and) we have a really busy week planed, so we're hoping that we get lots of seniors out joining us in the activities," stated Rose Poulson, Seniors Coordinator for the Town of Drumheller.

Poulson noted they are hosting a seniors art exhibit at the Drumheller Public Library.

"I'm encouraging all senior artists out there to bring whatever works of art they do down to the library and they will be exhibited for the whole month of June. We also want everyone to come down to see just how talented out seniors are," she noted.

Other events that will be celebrating seniors week was a free pancake breakfast, free bowling and outdoor fun and games.

"One of the other things we have going on all week next week is free manicures at the DVSS cosmetology lab. The lovely young ladies there will do a manicure for you for free. You just need to call me at 403-823-1317 to book an appointment and I need to book the week up so we keep those girls busy," Poulson outlined.

"There is free admission to the Royal Tyrrell Museum for seniors all week long from Monday, June 5 until Sunday, June 11. For any of you that haven't been to the museum in a few years, please take advantage of the free admission," she explained. "Also, you can go for a half price round of golf at the Rosebud Golf Course between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., so any golfers please get out and get a round in. Our final big event, which is Marcel's event at the Sunshine Lodge, is the Drumheller and District Seniors Foundation is hosting a free seniors barbecue on Friday, June 9. It starts at 12:00 p.m., it's a wonderful barbecue and all seniors are welcome to attend."
