The Loyola Arrupe Centre for Seniors has officially opened its doors at 55 Rankin Crescent, a Toronto Community Housing building near Bloor Street and Lansdowne Avenue.
The grand opening event on December 6 was filled with enthusiastic tenants who took part in yoga and fitness demos.
"The tenants are very excited to have an agency on site that provides such a wide range of services for them, with everything from dancing to coffee time," said Sherwin Modeste, Health Promotion Officer.
The centre is a space for people 55 years of age and older to enjoy activities like bingo and movie nights, and participate in educational and health and fitness programs. Registration for the programs is free for residents of 55 and 77 Rankin Crescent.
