Celebrating 60 years
The Islington Seniors’ Centre celebrates its 60th anniversary as a Seniors’ Centre this year! May 2020 marks 60 years of providing seniors with opportunities to socialize, share their talents and skills and become more active to maintain and improve overall health and wellbeing. The official name of the Centre is the Islington Centre—Etobicoke Senior Citizens to honour its location in Toronto. The Centre is known as the Islington Seniors’ Centre. We hope to be able to host an open house with refreshments later this year to celebrate this milestone.
