Harrison looking for feedback from service providers

Cherie Enns Consulting and the Village of Harrison Hot Springs are hosting an event to being to gauge the community for an Age-Friendly Plan. The event is to be held on April 1, and includes breakfast, and a workshop featuring a special guest speaker.

Breakfast is at 8 a.m., Steyn speaks at 8:30 a.m. and the workshop runs from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. in the Cascade Room of the Harrison Hot Springs Resort and Spa.

Harrison received an Age Friendly grant last year to help develop an age-friendly plan.
