The special ocassion was started by the federal government to "pay tribute to the seniors who have helped build our communities, workplaces and society." Oct. 1 is also the United Nations International Day of Older Persons.
The event in White Rock was in partnership with CARP, an advocacy association that works to promote and protect the interests, rights and quality of life for Canadians as they age.
