To Our Wonderful Members
Well, we're into a new year now (thankfully) and in anticipation of being able to open our doors later in this year we are asking Members to renew their memberships for 2021.
Before we get into how to renew, I'll give you an update on what has been happening here at the Centre. Over the last ten months, members of the board have been dropping in every other day for insurance purposes to make sure the building has not been vandalized or sprung a leak. Even with the tremendous amount of rain and wind that we've had the roof has held up and not leaked. Our expenses have been reasonable. Utilities and property taxes. We are very fortunate that the Seniors Centre does not pay rent and has no mortgage. We've stocked up on sanitizing supplies, thanks to grants we've received for this purpose. We have a draft Covid Plan in place that will be updated once we have an opening date for the Centre.
It's hard to say what our activity schedule will look like at this point but we'll work with what is safe for you, our instructors and our volunteers.
Membership for 2021 is $20. This was voted on and approved at the 2020 AGM. To renew memberships this year we feel it would be safer for you if you mail your cheque in (made payable to Parksville Seniors Centre or PSADIC) or make an interac e-transfer to Parksville Seniors Centre.
Starting January 25, we will be open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10am to 12noon to accept membership payments. Island Health has said that only one member may enter the building at a time to renew. Don't forget to bring your mask.
If you have any questions, please leave a message on the Centre's phone and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
