According to Leigh Hortop of the Lennoxville and District Community Aid, this past Tuesday’s public consultation on how to fill the void left behind by the end of the Lennoxville Golden Age Club was productive, even if only a small group showed up. “There was lots of feedback and lots of ideas,” she said, explaining that those who were in attendance were given individual surveys, followed by a small group discussion which led to a wider group discussion afterward. This model, Hortop explained, gave people time to formulate their own thoughts while also building ideas together as a group. “There were some people there who weren’t aware of us and our services and there were others who were connected to us and heard about it through word of mouth from us or one of our groups but hadn’t attended the golden age club,” she noted, pointing out that the resulting mix of people offered an interesting range of perspectives on what sorts of activities could replace the former club.
