Bigger Than Us Series

When: Thurs Feb 7: 1:30-3pm

Topic: “The Pros and Cons of Political Correctness”

Political correctness is a system of behavior that is adhered to by many of us in western societies. Is political correctness a good thing or a bad thing? What effect does it have on our political discourse? Many of us believe there is too much political correctness. Let us investigate this meme together in our Bigger Than Us presentation.

No charge. All are welcome. Please register in advance at the front desk.

Elder Abuse Presentation

When: Wed, Feb 27, 1 – 2:30 PM

Register in advance. Limited space.

Our guest speaker is Kim McDonald, a Case Manager and Educational Coordinator for Elder Abuse Response and Referral Service. In this “Elder Abuse 101” presentation Kim will discuss how to recognize elder abuse; what people can do to help; and what resources are available in the community. The intent is to offer hope that positive change is possible when seniors reach out for help or offer help to others.

No charge for members and guests but please register in advance at the Front Desk. Refreshments sponsored by the Kanata Senior’s Council.
