About Bev Birce

Been involved with the Seniors Centre Society since 2008. When we opened I was the Activities Coordinator for approx. 2 years. Then I was on the Board. I then took the secretary's position for another 2 1/2 years. I started the yoga classes 2010 with approx 6 students. I am now learning to be the webmaster of our website.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019

Well another year is here.  We have been very successful this year. There is another AGM and election coming up in February.  I urge anyone with particular skills to consider running for the Board of Directors.  Our next newsletter should have the details of how to put your name forward.

Have you check out our library lately???  What a collection of books.  We have over 500 books of various types and they are all alphabetical by author.  We would like to thank Bobbie Driscoll for her hard work keeping our library tidy.  There are many rewarding volunteer jobs that YOU can do.  Our centre runs entirely on volunteers except for our cook Dos.  YOU can help us.  Please leave your name at the desk and see if there is anything you can help out with.

Attn: Former Yoga Students

In September we removed all the yoga matts and put them aside and when people came back to yoga we put the remainder in a box until those people returned.  There was no other way to separate the ones that weren’t being used.  We left those in a box until this month.  

If you don’t come to yoga any more and would like your matt back, please contact Bev (though the office) and let her know what colour your matt is and she will leave it at the main seniors centre for you.  If you do NOT, we will be selling them off to other yoga students in the new year.

Have you thought about what you would do if you weren’t able to express your wishes.  Here is your opportunity to plan how you are taken care of, who takes care of you and all those other things we don’t want to think about.  Special workshops are given at the Hospice House on Evergreen Road.  Starting on the following dates:

FALL IS HERE

Well, we didn’t have a lot of Indian Summer this year but our programs have started back up and there is good attendance.  This coming Tuesday the computer club is starting back up but there needs to be some discussion about the future so please attend.  The Volunteer Luncheon is on September 22 so if you have been invited, please pick up your ticket at the front desk.

Facility Rentals

Is your group looking for a new place to meet that is level entry and safe?  Our seniors centre rents space when we are not using it.  Check out the “”RENTAL” link on our website for more information.  Contact Bev Birce at the centre.

SUMMER IS HERE!!!

Well it isn’t the best summer so far but hopefully it will improve.  Our summer programs are running under their summer hours, check the calendar on the website for changes.  Also, don’t forget we are still offering our great lunches, they are also on this website.  You may bring your guests with you to sample some of the great food.  See you there!
