Haliburton Chapter: 2015 Annual Meeting a Success!

On May 3, 2015, the Haliburton Highlands Chapter held their 3rd Annual General Meeting and Luncheon at the Haliburton Legion. Guest Speaker was David Cravit, Vice President, ZoomerMedia and Author of “The New Old”.  David’s entertaining talk further enlightened us to the changing demographic of our society and how seniors are playing a very large part of that.

There was plenty of time to meet and greet with fellow CARP members as well as peruse the information booths.  We thank the following groups for coming out and being a part of our event:  Active Foot Care; The Alzheimer Society; CARP/Zoomer Wireless/Zoomer Magazine; Highlands Medical Supplies; The Heart & Stroke/HH Stroke Support Group/Big Bike; McLennan Insurance Group; SIRCH Community Services; and Solterra Co-Housing.

We would also like to thank our Sponsors:



The Haliburton and Minden Hospital Auxilliaries also held a 50/50 Draw with the proceeds going to the Hospital ‘Wish Lists’.  Winner of the $76.00 prize was Lynn Storey.
