MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
We finally have SPRING upon us! Springing into a new addition, springing into new programs and springing from the depths of COVID!
Hopefully, this newsletter sees more restrictions being lifted and we can look at your smiling faces again. It has been a rough time for all of us, but we have persevered and got through it. Now time to move on.
We still have some hurdles to go through with our expansion, but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Just a simple reminder, there is no “I” in TEAM, so thanks to everyone who helped the club struggle through those times.
Welcome back everyone and let’s enjoy a spring/summer like no other.
Jane Chapman

FUNDRAISING NEWS
Our “Expansion Fundraising” efforts have brought out the best in the community with tremendous support from individuals, business owners, and through Grants from various levels of government. We still have a ways to go to reach our goal but with events planned, “Spring Fashion Show,” and “Under the Big Top” to name a few, and ongoing community support, we are confident that we will get there.
A special thanks to all of the folks at the Centre, employees and volunteers alike, for their efforts.

EXPANSION REPORT
March reviewed the landscape drawings for the courtyard. We requested revisions, eliminated greenery around the entrance to Bob Smith room, create a larger area for socializing and events, reposition 5 large planters, make a pad to accommodate shuffle board mats, relocate the children’s learning area and remove all ‘sod’. Audio/Visual (A/V) system review, confirmed 9 display monitors, increase size to 70” (if possible). Improved Zoom sound install a 360-degree drop-down video camera. Lighting for performances, request for in ceiling not Tripod lighting. ALD (Assisted Listening Devices) will be available. Install conduits for upgrading A/V in the Egan and Bob Smith rooms. On schedule to move into the expansion July, completion toward end of September. Nora Martin Chair
