WebStamp June 27, 2016
Everyone is talking about the first couple of issues of WebStamp. It’s great to see that there are so many interested in helping the local economy so they can get back to enjoying life. But it’s only talk. Only a few people hear you when you tell them, but a lot of people are reached when you broadcast it in social media. WebStamp is here to help Calgarians to participate in and enjoy their communities.
Those born between 1946 and 1964 are classified as baby boomers of which about 10,000 a day are heading into retirement. Boomers believed the world would improve with time and being the wealthiest, most active, and most physically fit generation up to that time avoided long-term planning for their golden years. With many not having an adequate pension plan and having to live off of small fixed incomes makes it difficult to obtain the additional necessities needed, such as medical supplies and mobility aids needed by the mature citizens.
Ever since communities developed around Fort Calgary the resilient and communal character of Calgarians always being quick to help out their neighbors, especially in troubled times, has prevailed throughout its 140 year history. Depending on the needs of the social order of the day numerous institutions such as churches, professional associations, friendly societies, social clubs and charitable organizations have developed to help Calgarians in times of need and improve their standard of living.
We all have heard about global warming and the effects on the environment, as we we are witnessing in our climate today.
