Seniors Alliance Group

Written by rhchc on July 22nd, 2014

 The Rawdon Hills Health Centre Association, along with the hall associations of the 

following community halls, Upper Nine Mile River, East Gore, Rawdon Gold Mines 
Seniors Hall, and Kennetcook have joined together to form the Seniors Alliance Group. 
This came about due to common concerns about the lack of programs and services for the 
senior population living within our rural communities. 
After a few meetings, the name of the Seniors Alliance Group was chosen, as we are 
aligning the seniors from the area of the County of East Hants referred to as Hants North. 
This area is home to 42 small rural communities! We then began to align our group with 
other organizations servicing the senior population in Hants County such as the Hants 
County Senior Safety Program and the R.C.M.P. It was felt that the best way to hold 
this cafe would be to travel between the four community halls, therefore, it would be in 
operation on a weekly basis and rotate through each community one day per month. From 
there with our wonderful volunteers produced a poster, ad and questionnaire have been 
The aim of this cafe is to provide senior citizens living within the Hants North area a 
venue to which they can attend weekly that would provide a casual cafe atmosphere 
where they can gather to have coffee/tea/muffins etc. Enjoy visiting with old friends and 
make new acquaintances; play games such as cards, board games, washer toss, carpet 
bowling to name few; have guest speakers covering topics of concern and interest to this 
population group. 
Behind the scenes, we have applied for a grant from the New Horizons for Seniors 
Program, as well to the Tim Horton’s Courtesy Bus, through the Community Health 
Centre and have received from the Board of the Rawdon Hills CHC a small start up 
budget so that we could begin this traveling cafe in June to gather information and input 
from the participants – making this "their cafe". So our pilot began on June 5th in Upper 
Nine Mile River and is making its rounds through all four community halls. At each 
location we are asking first time users to complete a questionnaire with regards to what 
they would like to have at their cafe – such as guest speakers, games etc. Also, we are 
running a Name the Cafe contest, each participant is given a ballot to submit and all of 
the suggested names. The names will be presented to the participants so that they can 
vote on their name. 
The information and suggestions obtained from the questionnaires has been quite 
valuable. Not only will this determine the workings of the cafe, but it also gives us 
information and guidelines which we can use when applying for grants and programs 
in the future for this group. One very common request is to have access to bus tours, 
and many good suggestions have been made as to where to take a bus tour. OF NOTE: 
the participants have also indicated that they would like to have name tags – like a 
membership card!! The organizers feel this is a wonderful idea and when the cafe name 
has been chosen, we will make up name tags with the cafe and members names!!!!!
Attendance at each site has been great, with a number of people following the cafe from 
hall to hall. We have a very enthusiastic group gathering and at our third cafe in East 
Gore Hall, we put forth a challenge to those in attendance to take an invitation and extend 
it to others that have not been to a cafe yet. 
Most certainly, we would expect this program to grow in popularity – more so that the 
seniors participating have a sense of ownership as this is their cafe – therefore games, 
speakers, activities etc. will all be driven by their suggestions and our abilities to fulfill 
those requests.
Cafe Schedule:
First Thursday of the month: Upper Nine Mile River Community Hall
Second Thursday of the month: Kennetcook Fire Hall
Third Thursday of the month: East Gore Community Hall
Fourth Thursday of the month: Rawdon Gold Mines, Seniors Hall
If this cafe is something that would be of interest to you, please drop by and join your 
neighbours and friends. Also, if you have a parent, grandparent, neighbour or family 
friend who would benefit from a social outing such as this, please take an invitation 
(below) and pass this along!!
