Letter from the President
May 2021

Turned another year older this month. Not a special number especially when I think of the age of most of our members here at the Centre. Our most senior being 95 years young and the youngest at 55. When I turned 65 last year, I missed out on a celebratory dinner because of Covid and this year was no different. But that’s okay. I’m grateful that no one I know has come down with the virus so big deal if I missed a fancy dinner out.

While you’re in our web site don’t forget to read this month’s newsletter put out by Bev Swann. Her paragraphs on the Board members are excellent. We have received emails from members that wish to become volunteers because of Bev’s request for more help. Thank you.

We have a new librarian, Kate Walter. Marion Glass worked at keeping the books organized for several years but has now moved to be closer to family. Good luck on your new adventure Marion! Thank you for taking on this responsibility Kate.

One thing that my husband and I have learned over the past year is that we really don’t need to leave Parksville to shop. We ventured to Courtenay’s Costco but it just didn’t feel right so we opted to stay local. Same with eating out. We’ve been enjoying take out from several places in Parksville and they all have delicious food. We have a three-way tie for the best hamburgers. Next outing will probably be fish and chips.

The Centre has not received word on any of the grants we applied for but we should have an update soon.

If you have any questions or comments, please email the Centre (drop.in@shaw.ca) or leave a message on the phone 250-586-5999.

Take care,

Liz Hintz, President
