Our Seniors Centre will host an “All Candidates” meeting on Wednesday, October 10th at 4:30 pm.

This is your chance to come and meet the candidates and ask them about Seniors’ Issues.  Bring your questions ahead of time and give them to Marcia or Linda.

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!

SPRING HAS SPRUNG!!

Wow, Spring is here.  We are enjoying lovely weather but others in our province are dealing with flooding.  We should appreciate this weather.  

  • Our tablet program is well underway with one course finished and another started.  It filled up very quickly.
  • Yoga is approaching summer hours.  It will continue but some days will be led by lay teachers.  
  • Mothers’ day tea is tomorrow.  Get your ticketss today.

Exciting changes

We now have a Director of Communications, his name is Bob Bray.  He has implemented an email program so now we can send you the Newsletter by the internet instead of having to copy it and you pick it up.  Great paper saver!  His new Newsletter format will be on this website soon.  You will now get the Newsletter separately from the Calendar from the Menu.

There is another exciting program coming on April 25.  It is called “Stay on the Road” and it will be given by COSCO volunteers at the Willow Point hall….But, you have to register so when the email comes from Bob, please pay attention to the information if you want to come.  There will be a limit.  They will also spend a small portion of their time on “Navigating the Emergency Department”.  Hopefully we won’t need that too soon.

March is here! Almost spring.

March newsletter is posted.  Exciting news.  The centre has in conjunction with the City of CR received 10 tablets for learning purposes.  There are several 3 week courses offered at both locations but space is limited to 10.  Sign up at the desk to be included and mark your calendar.

Bake and craft sale will be March 24th, 10 – 3 pm

We are closed for Easter on Friday Mar 30 and Easter Monday.

Mothers day tea tickets are available at the office. Pick yours up now before they are all gone.
