Celebrating seniors in the City of Belmont
Feedback from the City’s older residents showed many seniors were interested in creating more social connections and in having the opportunity to meet with younger people and learn how to use new technology.
The Stories and Skills – Across the Generations Project
was developed to address some of this feedback, which resulted in a series of stories collated into a book
The stories shared valuable lessons from across the world, of love, loss and the challenges and triumphs of living a long life, with a focus on the importance of family and friendship.
The project was implemented by the City of Belmont with funding from the Department of Communities through the Age-friendly Communities Innovation and Implementation Grants Program.
The City of Belmont wishes to thank the volunteers and the senior storytellers who worked together as part of this project.
