Grant furnishes hall in Kenton


Submitted article

Woodworth Senior Services (WSS) held an open house at Kenton Memorial Hall on Nov. 18. Employment and Social Development provided a grant of $23,286 through New Horizons (a seniors program) for new tables and chairs in our hall, which we are very proud of, and for the installation of Wi-Fi Internet service. Additional purchases were five laptops, a laptop charging station, a laser colour printer and a smart TV.

WSS treasurer Margaret Sangster was emcee for the afternoon program which opened with O Canada. Bringing greetings were Cheryl Porter (for MP Larry Maguire), Marvin Elder (RM of Woodworth), Mike Ramsden (Kenton Legion) and Jason Hodson (CrossRoads Community Church). The legion and CrossRoads are partnering with WSS in the ongoing expense of Wi-Fi service. Porter encouraged everyone to apply for federal grants.  

Following the program everyone was encouraged to join in the games, check out the laptops and visit over coffee and cookies. All of the games, as well as computer classes, will be available each Tuesday from 2 to 4 p.m. at Social Club. People of all ages are welcome to attend Social Club.
