Facebook and iPads aren't just for the younger generation. Members of the Sunshine Club seniors' organization take an iPad class at Echo Centre to get to know their new technology. The Alberni Valley salutes its seniors from June 2–8 for Seniors' Week.

Port Alberni salutes seniors June 2-8

Seniors Week is chock-a-block full of activities for seniors from age 50 and up. There's still time to enjoy.

Seniors’ week is June 2–8 in the Alberni Valley and the days will be filled with activities for people aged 50 and above. Parks and Recreation have a whole schedule of events laid out at various places throughout the Valley. See our special supplement included with today’s Alberni Valley News.

For the first time ever, seniors can participate in a mobility scooter rodeo, to learn safe ways to drive around the community. There are trips planned to the West Coast aboard the Frances Barkley, and to McLean Mill on the steam train.

Want to get on the water? Try dragon boating, outrigger canoe paddling or even adult swimming.

And many businesses are opening their doors to seniors with special attention too.
