Tell us what you did during Active Aging Week to redefine the term "Active."

Berwick Qualicum Beach. We celebrated Active Aging week in many ways! We enjoyed a trip to the local fish hatchery to watch salmon jumping and bears feeding, and tried a new fitness course called “Essential Movement and Wellness.” We also held a vintage car photoshoot just for fun and completed the photoshoot for our fall/winter edition of our biannual magazine "Cultivate" which we submitted for print the week after. Our ukulele band "Strings & Sings" held a concert and 25 community members signed up to join, making our audience total 50! Our 20-piece band is made up of residents who learned the ukulele two years ago, and some in January this year, many who have never played an instrument before. It is inspiring to see how the band has progressed during this time and how much joy they are able to share with their audiences and each other! We had a very fun Active Aging Week!
