Dear CSAH community,

A huge thank you to all the members who came out to CSAH's annual conference. We appreciate the valuable knowledge and energetic discussion brought forward and have added PDF copies of the presentations to Sagelink. CSAH also held a photo contest to showcase experiences of seniors living in our community. Prizes were awarded to Quang Bui, Carol Whyman and Charlotte Long. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported this community event. We hope to see you next year!
