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

Welcome to the New Year. What an exciting year we had last year! This year promises to have many fun activities again. Many dinners, concerts, Valentine's activity day, the comedy show and the Murder Mystery Dinner are just a few. These extra fundraisers help keep our membership fees low. We will not be increasing them again this year. Our main objective here is FUN. Keep coming out and bring your friends.
