CARP Flags were raised across the country this past Tuesday, October 1st, 2013 as over 45 CARP Chapters simultaneously took part in their own flag raising ceremony across Canada in honour of National Seniors Day!
Each chapter was very successful in their community outreach efforts as local City Mayors and City Councillors attended and played an active role in these ceremonies. In addition, local news stations covered majority of these events!
