Dysart et al could be rolling out more recreation and education programming for seniors.

Recreation and Programs Coordinator Andrea Mueller says the municipality will apply for a $50,000 grant from the province to support the initiative.

The grant would come from the Seniors Affairs Ministry under its Seniors Active Living Centres Program Expansion.

Mueller told Dysart council this morning the money is meant to fund new initiatives, not current ones unless they are expanding.

Mueller says there will be two days a week of programming should the municipality receive the grant.

She adds the programming can be anything from cooking classes to exercise sessions.

Mueller also says the second day would be devoted to having someone visit seniors’ homes and teach them about computers, tablets and anything tech related.

She says it makes more sense to visit homes than to have a single class.

Mueller was unable to give an idea of when she will know if the grant application was successful.
