Centre News – January / February 2022

Newsletter January February 2022


MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
PAYING IT FORWARD!
Those are the words we often hear these days. Acts of kindness towards your fellow man. I feel this is what we Seniors are doing for the future of our Centre and the community. 30 years ago, someone saw a need and the Centre was built for Seniors to enjoy and pass on to upcoming younger members. This is what I feel we are doing now. We will enjoy all the new amenities and pass on a better and bigger Centre as a legacy to those who come behind us. We need your help to accomplish this, so I am asking that you consider a donation to this cause and be a part of the “TEAM” which is for all to enjoy. I know some members have been very generous and I thank you for your support. We have a way to go and I would like to see that “money” thermometer in the building rise over the next few months to reach our goals. Stay safe and see you at the Centre. Regards, Jane Chapman

FUNDRAISING NEWS
To date we have raised over $100,000 towards our 3-year goal of $600,000. We have and are participating in many community events to increase the exposure of our cause and raise funds directly from the community, with much more planned for the New Year. We have just completed our 5th Grant proposal for government funding based on our cause. We continue to advertise our fundraising campaign in local newspapers and magazines while reaching out directly to households through mail drops. We have some significant commitments from Business Owners in the community. We are partnering with organizations such as, Rotary, KIN and the Caledon Chamber of Commerce who are stepping up in our outreach to the community. There is a Gala Event in the planning stage for early in 2022.With what we are seeing and hearing from the community we are confident that we will reach our goal to ensure the newly expanded facility will enable CSC to provide more programs, more activities, more engagement to more Seniors throughout Caledon. We thank all that have and are supporting this worthwhile initiative.
