Letter from the President.
Here we are one year after closing our doors due to Covid 19. Unfortunately, the number of new cases is still high.
The Covid vaccinations have started and by now our most senior members will have had their first shot. Be patient everyone; Island Health is working hard to make sure everyone has the opportunity to be vaccinated.
We’ve had a change on the Board. Due to personal reasons one of our Directors has stepped down and Lisa Moulatsiotis has joined us as a Director.
The Centre’s Board Members are busy making some changes while the Centre is empty. Enhancing the library, upgrading the office which could include new computers if the grant comes through. The kitchen will have some work done to it.
We have applied for a grant to top up our fitness equipment i.e., hand weights, Thera bands, DVD player and head sets for the instructors.
Over the next couple of months we’ll will be working on a computer program for registrations for the exercise classes as we may have to keep them small following Covid protocol and we want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to take part in these classes.
Opening the Centre is not an option right now. Be assured that as soon as is safely possible our doors will be opened to activities and lunches.
We’ll continue to update you as soon as we can.
Liz Hintz, President
