From the president, Cliff Hartwick
It’s time for spring flowers to appear. Each year we have hosted the Baileys Concert and again we had a successful event. On behalf of the centre I would like to extend thanks to Brad, Lynn, Dale, Brian, John, and Charlene for bringing their music to us. We had a successful St. Patrick's Day Party. Thanks to all who participated. We lacked a few card players for our April 6th party but those in attendance enjoyed themselves.
Upcoming events include our health fair on May 3rd. Some special speakers will be in attendance. You won’t want to miss this. Our annual Victoria Day weekend will feature our Pancake Breakfast on May 20th. Our Petrolia trips will start on June 6th with a musical good time & groovy tunes from ‘Summer of 69’. That should bring back memories from 50 years ago.
Please be here Friday June 14th for our Annual General Meeting, followed by a Strawberry Social. Some important business is on the horizon.
I would like to thank you for your faith in me as your President this past year. We got a lot of projects done. Our Centre is both financially and physically in good shape. I look forward to working with our incoming President, Homer Vandervecht.
From the Executive Director, Christine Lehn
Welcome back snow birders. Spring has finally arrived. Coming up in June we will be holding our Annual General Meeting on Friday, June 14 at 1:00 followed by a Strawberry Social. This is the time for you to come and learn how the Centre is doing. We have exciting new changes in store. The first one is renovating the washrooms in the west room to make them wheelchair accessible. Please be patient with the contractors. More improvements are planned pending funding.
The first of four summer trips to Petrolia is on June 6. Sign-up sheets are posted. Remember, I need to pay for the tickets one month in advance, so please sign up early. The trips are open to members first. If any seats are available 3 weeks prior to a show a member will be able to invite one person to join us.
It has been a pleasure having Zoey complete her co-op here. She is available daily from 11:30 until 2:00 for help with your laptop, tablet, or phone until mid-June. No appointment is necessary.
Beginning in July, we will be having Cooking for Diabetes Classes. More details to follow.
