Monday, June 4, marks the start of Alberta Seniors Week.

The province wide celebration is in its 32nd year, and is intended to recognize seniors who helped build and shape Alberta, and the daily contributions they make to our communities.

Albertans 65 and over will receive free admittance to the province's 20 historic sites, museums and archives in recognition of this special week.

Irfan Sabir, Minister of Community and Social Services and Acting Minister of Seniors and Housing says, "Seniors have built this province and continue to contribute to the vibrancy of our communities by offering knowledge, skills and experience that benefit Alberta."

Places like the "Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump" and the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller will be giving free admission to seniors through the week.
