Welcome to the Sackville Seniors Advisory Council's website. This site will keep you up to date with all the upcoming events and programs being offered through the council.
Sackville Seniors' Advisory Council was formed in 1987 and has their own Constitution and By-Laws, and has 15 Board of Directors. The council oversees the operation of the Silver and Gold Drop in Center which has a membership of over 400 and is representative of seniors living in the area .
Members of the council attend conferences and workshops on a regular basis and compile information which is passed on to seniors. One of the ways this information is shared is through the Silver and Gold Seniors' Drop-in Centre, which is operated by the council with a full time Coordinator. The council has initiated many new programs, such as educational video tapes, income tax assistance, filling out of government forms, and assisting seniors in contacting the right government people when necessary. They have had input into the new housing development (and many more are needed) being built in Sackville through the Nova Scotia Housing Commission. This group welcomes the opportunity to serve their fellow seniors in any way possible.
The main project of the Sackville Seniors' Advisory Council is the Silver & Gold Seniors' Drop-In Centre, which is located at 45 Connolly Road in Lower Sackville Nova Scotia. This is an ideal location for seniors as bus routes are close by, and it is wheelchair accessible . Click here to see a map of how to find Silver & Gold.
The Drop-In Centre is open to seniors Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 4:00pm. We have a full time coordinator on duty to make everyone welcome. Tea or coffee and lots of friendly conversation along with card games, bingo, fitness classes, and more are available to all that drop-in
