      This is not about Genealogy. It's about being a "senior". My apologies for
      intruding on the list - I hope I have enough 'credits' with the listers to
      allow me this infraction.

      Non-seniors on the list - delete now!

      This is an opporunity to brag about what our "senior" members do well -
      living life "resiliently".

      As many of you know, I'm a City Hall staffer. The Dept that I'm in,
      includes folks who are involved with distributing FCSS funds to various
      agencies around town, including the Kerby Centre.

      Today, I learned from an FCSS colleague that the Kerby Centre is mounting a
      day-long workshop to consult with and discuss with Calgary seniors about
      what makes them "resilient". The intent is to inform/build a future
      research research agenda by academics such as are found at U of Calgary.

      I told my colleague that I knew lots of seniors who were doing very well and
      might not want to be considered as "resilient for their age". I also said
      that I consider my older AFHS friends to be "resilient" no matter what age
      was considered, I was encouraged to have you consider participating in this

      There's free coffee, food & parking - I'll be at least one friendly face
      that you'd know. :-) Following is the Kerby Centre invitation.


      The Future is Now: Be a Part of It

      Kerby Centre of Excellence is inviting seniors to participate in a workshop
      on May 27, 2003 at Kerby Centre from 9:30 AM to
      2:30 PM. The workshop will explore resilience among seniors to determine how
      both seniors and senior's communities are able to bounce back, be healthy
      and hardy when encountering setbacks. This interactive workshop provides
      opportunities for seniors to be actively participating in research involving

      We want to hear from seniors like you, who have found ways to thrive, meet
      others, stay connected, learn about new ideas and contribute. We want to
      identify what makes some seniors resilient and how that information can be
      used to help other seniors.

      Kerby is interested in having seniors join us for a day to learn about your
      personal experience with resilience. The workshop starts with coffee and a
      chance to meet other seniors. This will be followed by group discussions
      where seniors will be given the opportunity to talk about their own
      experience with coping and thriving.

      The afternoon will feature speakers and a panel discussion.

      The workshop is free to participants and includes lunch. Free parking is
      available in the Kerby Centre parking lot. If you are interested in
      attending, please contact Dorothy Dooley at 265-0661 ext 255 or email at

      Location: Kerby Centre Gymnasium
      1133 - 7 Ave SW

      P.S. no one has specified what age a senior is, but I'm assuming that I (at
      50) don't yet qualify, but those 60+ would.
