Guide to Seniors’ Week 2023

May 30, 2023

Recognized annually across Alberta, Senior’s Week takes place Jun 5-11, 2023. This is an opportunity to show appreciation for older adults and the many contributions they make to Hanna through volunteerism, assisting charities, and supporting family members and friends.

This year’s theme is Aging is more and is focused on exciting all Hanna & area residents about aging. We invite all organizations, groups, local businesses and everyday citizens to imagine fun and inclusive celebratory events as a way to recognize Seniors’ Week. We hope to increase awareness of the week and develop a positive attitude towards aging. Events can be added to the Town of Hanna event calendar by visiting

The Town of Hanna attempts to include all community activities that are held to honour Seniors in our advertising to help get the word out. The Town is also offering a wide range of free activities that include fitness, art, golf, social events, meditation and more! You don’t have to be a Senior to participate in many of the events. Be sure to check the Event Calendar at and look for Seniors’ Week on June 5 as the week draws closer.

Reminder: Register for the Mayor’s Garden Party by May 31! Just call the office at 403-854-4433.
