Community Event

Andrew Haydon Park (3169 Carling Avenue)

The Diverse Seniors Picnic of 2018 was organized by the Jewish Family Services of Ottawa  JFS Ottawa. Some of the participating partners included: CCI Ottawa’s Seniors Circles and OCISO.

Thanks to the staff, volunteers, partner agencies and, of course, the seniors, over 200 people from all corners of the world enjoyed each other’s company, food, and live entertainment.

We were pleasantly surprised to see the dedicated seniors from the Ottawa Community Housing (OCH), because of the long and difficult commute.   

This multicultural picnic was a great opportunity to meet new people in the same city. By the end of this picnic, we all talked as friends, old and new, clapped our hands, sang and danced – truly connecting.
