Age-Friendly Saskatchewan Newsletter: The Connector

Approximately once a month, Age-Friendly Saskatchewan sends out a newsletter called The Connector. As you can see from the banner above, it includes upcoming AF Events, updates to this website, things that are happening at SSM (Saskatchewan Seniors Mechanism), and answers to queries.

We are now archiving this newsletter here, for your convenience. Each issue is in PDF format, accessible by clicking on the thumbnail image of the pertinent issue. Main articles are listed briefly below each thumbnail for your convenience.

Note: in PDFs, hyperlinks will only open if the PDF has been opened with Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you don’t have Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is free, you may download it at this link.
