/R E P E A T -- The United Senior Citizens of Ontario Inc. holds 50th annual convention/



    TORONTO, Aug. 4 /CNW/ - The United Senior Citizens of Ontario Inc.,
(U.S.C.O.) is holding its 50th annual convention at the Holiday Inn &
Conference Centre, 3063 South Service Road, Burlington Ontario on August 18,
19, and 20, 2008 with approximately 200 delegates in attendance.
    Representing some 300,000 seniors across the province, the U.S.C.O. is
dedicated to promoting the quality of life of older adults through educating,
counselling and advising seniors, service providers, and policy makers about
issues of importance to seniors.
    The delegates discuss resolutions that have been submitted by many of our
900 clubs.
    These resolutions will be debated and voted on. Those passed will be
forwarded in a brief to the various government ministries involved.
    There will be speakers representing provincial and local government as
well as presentations on other timely topics of interest to seniors.
    This year the U.S.C.O. convention is dedicated to The Golden years and we
are pleased to welcome our key-note speaker, Mayor Cam Jackson who will
deliver his message on Tuesday August 28 at the banquet.
    There will be booths available for people to peruse and workshops on
Monday evening.
    We look forward to a very exciting and challenging convention as we
debate issues such as health, pension, transportation, etc.
    We invite all persons over the age of 50 to become active in the seniors
movement by joining the largest volunteer, grass-roots senior association in
Ontario.
