New CARP Rep for New Brunswick

For the past five years, Wayne and Barb Harrigan of Riverview, New Brunswick have been the volunteer reps in the province for CARP, Canada’s Association for the Fifty-Plus. Over those five years, they have had many opportunities to meet with and speak to seniors. They have kept in touch with the ten thousand CARP members who live in New Brunswick and provided a liaison between them and the national office in Toronto. Among the places they have attended meetings and spoken to seniors are Fredericton, Saint John, Moncton, Hampton, Sussex, Petitcodiac, Riverview, Sackville, Murray Corner, Havelock, Woodstock, Edmundston, Bathurst, Belleisle Creek, Kingston, St. Andrews, Cambridge-Narrows and Rexton, and they have attended meetings on behalf of CARP in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Ontario. Although they will continue to encourage people to join CARP and will continue to belong to the Association, they are retiring from their role as provincial reps.
The Harrigans are pleased to announce that New Brunswick has a new CARP rep, Louise Gilbert of Moncton. Louise has a long record of successful business work and an extensive list of volunteer activities. Presently she is Vice-Chair of the Mayors’ Senior Advisory Committee for Moncton. In addition she has volunteered with the YWCA, Greater Moncton Chamber of Commerce, Red Cross, the Junior Achievement Program and the Alzheimer’s Society. Fluently bilingual, Louise is able to provide assistance to all of New Brunswick’s fifty-plus crowd. CARP members are encouraged to contact Louise at 389-9808 if they have any concerns about their membership or issues which affect them.
Many seniors have expressed the wish that a blog remain in place which will provide useful information about upcoming events, seniors’ issues, travel and educational opportunities for the 50plus.
We are happy to welcome you to Prime Time, a new site just for the 50plus crowd in New Brunswick! Help us spread the word.
