Images included in the Connect Calendar 2024 are competition entries by older and younger residents of Co Cavan to creatively depict the 5 ways to well-being:
Be Active - Step outside, walk, dance, discover a physical activity that suits your lifestyle.
Notice - Savour the moment and be aware of the world around you.
Connect - With people around you, at home, in your local library and in your community.
Keep Learning - Local libraries are at the heart of learning in your community, check out the service we offer to try something new or re-visit an old interest.
Give - Do something nice for a friend or stranger – participate in local community initiatives available in your local library or community setting.
The calendar has been developed and designed with the voice of the older person to the fore and is distributed to 2000 older people throughout the county through library branches. This initiative is part of Creative Cavan programme delivery – funded by Creative Ireland to embed creativity and well-being.
If you would like a copy of the calendar - pop into your local library or contact Sharon Howe email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 049 437 8506.
