CENTRE WILL BE CLOSED FOR AN INDEFINITE TIME STARTING MONDAY, MARCH 16TH.
GIVEN THE CHANGING PUBLIC HEALTH ENVIRONMENT AROUND THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19). THE BOARD HAS MADE THE DECISION TO CLOSE THE CENTRE STARTING ON MONDAY, MARCH 16TH FOR AN INDEFINITE TIME.
From the President, Homer Vandervecht
A DREAM written down with a date becomes a GOAL. A goal broken down into steps becomes a PLAN. A plan backed by ACTION becomes REALITY. Well before I was elected President, your Board of Directors and Executive Director had a dream and a goal. Plans were made to upgrade various areas of the Centre's facilities. This past year we were able to take action to replace the kitchen and bathrooms, as well as the west room floor, and refresh a number of other areas. The west wall mural was included in the action and the reality was reached! Thanks to the leadership of our Executive Director Christine, the faithful efforts of dozens of volunteers, and the support of more than 250 members, 2019 was a very successful year. Your current Board of Directors continues to have a dream and a goal. In the next few months you will hear more details about the future plans. It will soon be 2020!! What were your thoughts when as a youngster you thought ahead to the years 2000, 2010 and now 2020? Did you ever imagine being a member of an organization that works diligently to improve the lives of the seniors in Leamington and area ? Check this Chatter for the activities that are scheduled in the next few months. All the ticketed events are especially popular. Get your tickets early so you do not miss out. I urge you to share a copy of each Chatter with a friend or neighbour, and invite them to come for a visit. A wise man once said, "Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter."
From the Executive Director, Christine Lehn

I have plenty of volunteers who help keep things running smoothly. This is the time of year we begin looking for new Board Members. We have 4 Board Members whose 3 year term ends in June. If you are interested in a position on the Board, please contact a current member or myself.
