Millet Seniors Wellness Conference sees rave reviews

Preparations begin for 23rd annual conference

It was an occasion of education, relaxation and socialization according to organizers of the 22nd Annual Seniors Wellness Conference.

The festivities took place at the Millet Agriplex on June 6, with 185 individuals in attendance.

“Out of those, I think 97 per cent of the people that attended said they were very glad they attended the senior conference,” said Linda Mueller, Wetaskiwin Family and Community Support Service (FCSS) manager.

“Which was great. It’s absolutely fabulous,” she added.

Throughout the day attendees were treated to free massages, origin yoga, display booth information of a wide variety, a presentation from pharmacist Rod Bleakney, two Alberta Health Care presentations, a fraud prevention seminar through the Wetaskiwin RCMP detachment and Wetaskiwin Victim Services, and special guest comedian Ken Valgardson.

Mueller says many of the presentations and components of the conference received positive feedback, including the RCMP presentations, both Alberta Health Services presentations, and the pharmacy presentation.

Another favorite was Valgardson’s comedic entertainment. “He was very much enjoyed by everyone that mentioned him,” said Mueller.

“The day was busy, it was very full,” she added.

Mueller says the dedicated group of seniors who work every year to organize the conference for the region are already planning the 23rd Annual Seniors Wellness Conference.

“I already have a lot of suggestions for that,” said Mueller.

“I think they’re just this amazing group of seniors who enjoy providing this service,” she added.
