HAGERSVILLE—A decade of programming at the Haldimand Abilities Centre (HAC) has covered everything from music to motion to crafts to recreational activities to cooking. In addition, guest speakers have provided insight on health and wellness and other topics of interest.
Sandra Mallett, public relations and activation worker at HAC, explains that the centre’s target audience is adults over 18 and she emphasizes, “We are open to all individuals.” Most programs are offered directly at HAC, located at 42 Main Street South in Hagersville, which is open year-round on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
Programming space is also rented at the Hagersville United Church, next door. Some programs are provided in communities throughout the county.
Many of the HAC programs are therapeutic to meet specific needs: Exercise Your Eyes is a new series on vision therapy; Brain Fit and More offers brain stimulating activities; the Talking Book Club provides an audio book and discussion for individuals for whom reading is a challenge.
