ENGAGEMENT QUESTION OF THE MONTH
The West End Seniors Network (WESN) has a question for you. In fact, they have a new question every month, designed to stimulate conversations, ignite ideas, and bring the community together. Your answers will also help WESN in planning their programs, activities, and services in the future.
January’s question is “Do you have a New Year’s Resolution. What is it, and how will you achieve it?” and you can answer by writing your response on a sheet of paper located in the Fireside Room at Barclay Manor, or online here.
