After 31 years serving the area from the Tri-Towns to Hearst from an office in Timmins… the Alzheimer Society of the Timmins-Porcupine District is celebrating a much larger, much more visible location.
The ribbon was cut Wednesday afternoon at the 101 Mall.
“Being in the 101 Mall actually increases our visibility as there are many different organizations that are co-located here, where people are coming,” she comments. “ It gives better parking and we have a much larger space so we can actually host our events onsite.”
Koskamp-Bergeron says the new location will provide more opportunities for walk-in business – that’s people looking for information – and allows support groups and education programs to be offered onsite, instead of finding spaces for them.
“We’re looking to partner with the Porcupine Health Unit to offer the stand-up program, which is an exercise program for people over 60 as well as improving our music project and our programs that we currently offer.”
