Newsletter November December 2021


MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT:

FINALLY, a shovel in the ground at the Centre! We are excited to see the fencing up and temporary walls on the inside to protect us during construction. I for one will embrace the noise and small inconveniences knowing we are moving ahead! Still a lot of work but we are extremely optimistic our members will be supportive.
It is so nice to see smiling faces, laughter and fun happening again as members start returning, enjoying in house lunches, cards, exercise, and other programs. Hope to see you at the Centre.
Regards, Jane Chapman

EXPANSION UPDATE:

The dream of so many is finally becoming a reality, we look forward to the next year or so to see the progress.  Percon the construction company have started work. The work office is on site and security fencing is now in place. The building area is being cleared in preparation for construction.

 

FUNDRAISING NEWS:

A Fundraising Committee has been formed to take advantage of the knowledge, experience, and expertise of a number of individuals from the community, in combination with several Board members and experienced employees.
The goal is to raise an estimated $1 million dollars over 3 years to cover the costs of Chattels specific to the expansion of the current CSC facility, exclusive of actual planning and constructions costs. A fully comprehensive workplan will be established and every avenue explored to meet the goal. Any support, recommendation, insight or suggestion are welcomed from our membership and the community at large.
