What’s better than a slice of free pie? How about a whole pie?
For National Seniors Day, Bria Communities seniors residences in Langley and South Delta will celebrate older adults by giving away full-size pies to seniors who drive-thru their pie pick-up event.
It’s as simple as it sounds: cars pull up, windows go down, and one of our chefs will pass you their freshly made pie. “It’s a pretty cool experience to have an Executive Chef dressed in his finest pass along a pie he’s handmade for you,” says Tanya Snow, Director of Bria Communities.
“This was an event we developed during Covid to celebrate seniors even when we do social distancing. Now that those days are in the rearview, we still love doing the drive-thru—it’s easy as…pie!”

“It’s active aging week, so consume your pie responsibly,” jokes Tanya Snow. “Some people might be tempted to pick up more than one. We’re encouraging people to make sure there’s enough pie to go around by visiting only one event.”
NATIONAL SENIORS DAY
National Seniors Day in Canada is October 1, coinciding with the United Nations’ International Day of Older Persons. The day celebrates and appreciates seniors’ contributions to our homes and communities. Immediately following is Active Aging Week. An initiative that encourages adults over 50 to take advantage of all life has to offer. The goal of this week is to promote wellness initiatives and to get bodies up and moving.
Tanya’s got one piece of pie day advice for seniors in Langley and Tsawwassen. “If you’re planning on enjoying a free pie from Bria Communities, getting up and moving should be on your agenda for the following week!”
