About Project Participants

The Fifty Plus Club was very pleased with the partnerships that they were able to form in the community to complete this project. They provided names and address of seniors who had interesting stories to tell. Students from Ascension Collegiate conducted the interviews. All the other partnering groups provided whatever assistance was necessary when help was requested.

Below are photographs of a selection of students who conducted the interviews, and the seniors that they interviewed.
