VIDEO: Pitt Meadows seniors enjoy outdoor dance party for Seniors Week

Outdoor party held in the parking lot of the Pitt Meadows Seniors Activity Centre

A live concert was held in the parking lot of the Pitt Meadows Seniors Activity Centre on Thursday to mark Seniors Week in the community.

Normally there would be several events throughout the week, said Carmen Tischer, activity coordinator for the Ridge Meadows Seniors Society.

But, this year, events had to be pared down because of the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing rules.
