February 20th Food For Thought Luncheon


The Victoria Target Theatre Society presents “Age in Wheels”.

The Target Theatre takes to the stage to explore the ins and outs of safe driving for seniors.  Go “on the road” with your favourite cast of elderly adventurers.

Started in 1986 as a group of older adults with an interest in the performing arts, the Target Theatre has grown into a company of mature actors who provide a voice for the concerns of seniors.

Following the performance, Susan Sowden, Co-ordinator, BCTransit Community Travel Training, will give a brief talk on valuable travel and safety tips and answer your questions about all BC Transit Accessible Services including Taxi Saver and handyDART.

When:  Monday, February 20th from 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm.

Where:  Jewish Community Centre of Victoria, 3636 Shelbourne St.

Sit down luncheon includes coffee or tea and dessert. Cost is $12.00.

Call or email the JCCV at 250-477-7185 or jccv@telus.net to reserve.
