January Community Meetings “Winter and Seniors Driving” Review

Information posted February 2, 2016

Our January meeting where we featured Winter Driving plus the Senior License Renewal Process proved to be a resounding success so much so that seating was a problem at Burlington. As our meetings become more popular if at all possible please consider attending the Milton location where we have more space. Meetings at both locations are exactly the same and Milton is an easy drive from the north Oakville and north  Burlington areas.

The photo below shows the large group in attendance at Burlington.

Sponsors are an integral part of our meetings and we thank them for their support. Many attendees took the opportunity to chat with them at their tables as can be seen below with visitors chatting to the representatives from Burlington Orthotics.
