Project SOS: Share Our Stories captures the stories of resiliency from seniors in the communities of Okotoks, Black Diamond, Turner Valley, High River and Longview.
Project SOS launched October 1, 2020 to celebrate International Day of Older Persons, and every week throughout spring 2021 we shared new stories about challenges seniors in our communities faced and how they overcame them. The project concluded May 31, 2021.
To celebrate the 2021 International Day of Older Persons, we've compiled all the stories into a collection for everyone to enjoy. Printed copies are available in limited quantities at libraries and senior centres in the participating communities starting October 1. Printed in partnership with the Okotoks & District Historical Society.
