About 5,000 elders from all corners of British Columbia travelled to Campbell River to attend this year’s B.C. Elders Gathering.

The 41st annual gathering took place from June 11 to 13 at the Strathcona Gardens Recreation Complex.

The event organized by the B.C. Elders Communication Center Society is a chance for Elders to come together, see old friends and family, share stories and partake in discussions.

Speakers included AFN National Chief Perry Bellegarde, B.C. Lt. Gov. Judith Guichon and MP Rachel Blaney.

The three-day event also included arts and crafts, vendors, bingo and karaoke.
