The Federal Government has promised 24,800 in funding to the Metis Local 1990 Elder’s Caring Shelter in Grande Prairie.
The grant is part of the New Horizons for Seniors program.
Peace River MP Chris Warkentin says for a rather small dollar figure, this funding has the potential to make large impact.
“This initiative will get senior citizens out doing a number of different physical activity programs that will include bowling, some that will include square dancing, and really an opportunity for senior citizens to get engaged in their community, as well as have some fun and get some exercise to boot.”

Warkentin says this funding announcement is the first of many through the New Horizon program on the way for the Peace region.
