Seniors' Week may have come and gone, but the City of Chestermere is still hyping up its retirees.

The city held its second annual Tour de Chestermere to kick off Seniors' Week last week. 

Ty Tomasta, communications manager with the city highlighted the achievements and contributions of seniors within our community during the important week.

"The purpose of this tour coincided with the fact that we wanted to get seniors out exercising. We wanted to get people to explore the beautiful parks and lakeside here in Chestermere, where we also have some wonderful pathways. It was also a great opportunity to unite a diverse community of seniors."

Tomasta explained that the senior population is what makes Chestermere unique.

"Seniors are truly the foundation of Chestermere. We love being a part of Seniors' Week and hosting these events all around the city." 

Tomasta said that the city is always looking for ways to partner with different organizations to ensure the senior community is being served to the best capacity possible.

"We always like to hear from seniors and want to know more. Please reach out to our Community Services department. We have staff available there to help serve the seniors community all year long."
