I have been thoroughly enjoying all of the beautiful Autumn colours here in Brockville! Although summer may be behind us as temperatures are hovering just over freezing some mornings, now there is a lot to look forward to with all of the inside activities.
There are new activities as well as a number of activities that have been running for several years. Activities are now running at six different locations throughout the city, five days of the week almost all day long.
This semester is off to a great start! We have the highest number of members in the history of the Brockville 50+ Activity Centre with over 450 participants! Outstanding everyone!
Once again, a huge thank you to all of the activity leaders, for all that you do! To all of the board members, thank you too! The success that we are currently achieving, is a direct result of all of the hard work being done by everyone, before, during and after the semester starts.
The Board of Directors are very pleased to announce our newest board member, Mike Libbos, will be joining us. Many of you will have met Mike through Table Tennis or Pickleball or other activities. Mike brings a wealth of volunteer and leadership skills to our organization and we look forward to working together. Congratulations Mike and welcome to the BOD!
I hope that everyone is enjoying the time they are spending with their 50+ friends and family this Fall, a time to reconnect and learn what everybody has been busy with, during the summer months... I know I am!
I would like to end this message with a reminder of the mandate of the 50+ Activity Centre. It is to enhance the lives of those 50 years old and over, by providing in a friendly and welcoming environment, affordable programs and activities that will keep them mentally and physically active.
This information and much more is available at: www.fiftyplusbrockville.ca
I hope you have a chance to go online and look around. Also, feel free to share the website with someone who may not know about the Brockville 50+ Activity Centre. The more the merrier!
Looking forward to seeing many of you during this semester!
