Mayor joins federal, provincial governments to celebrate seniors
On Monday, June 27, the Mayor's Roundtable on Seniors will host its inaugural
event to celebrate Seniors' Month and recognize the ongoing contribution that
seniors make to a healthy and vibrant City of Toronto.

Mayor David Miller and the Hon. John Gerretsen, Minister of Municipal Affairs
and Housing and Minister Responsible for Seniors, will speak at a reception
that will kick off the event. Councillor Gay Cowbourne, Chair of the
Roundtable, will provide opening remarks to welcome seniors from across

The event is "Seniors' Services and All that Jazz" -- a display and information
day that offers seniors an opportunity to learn more about the government and
community services that are available to support them. Staff and volunteers
will be on hand to answer questions that seniors might have about how to gain
access to services.

This event coincides nicely with the TD Canada Trust Downtown Jazz Festival
concerts in Nathan Phillips Square. Concerts on the opening day of the
information fair feature the Peter Appleyard Big Band performing a Tribute to
Lionel Hampton, and a Jazz Appreciation Workshop with Thompson Egbo-Egbo.

Date: Monday, June 27
Launch Time: 11 a.m.
Location: Members' Lounge, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.
Display Time: 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Location: Rotunda, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

Note: The display will also be open on Tuesday, June 28.
