Calendar of Events
CENTRE RECENT UPDATES
ATHABASCA & DISTRICT SENIORS SOCIETY NEWSLETTER September 14, 2023
The Board met on Tuesday this week and reviewed financials, maintenance issues, and various scheduling items. We found out that the Community Supper at the Multiplex is schedule for December 7, so we rescheduled our Christmas Potluck for December 14. More details will follow as we get closer to that date. For the month of September, our revenues and expenses were roughly the same; so our balance for the year is a positive $21,600.
In September, we only had around 65 people come to our Pancake Breakfast. Our next breakfast is Tuesday, October 31. Since our breakfasts and suppers are important sources of revenue for the Centre, it is important that we have good turnouts. Hope to see you there. We held our annual Fall supper last Friday and we had a good turnout (221 people). Kudos and many, many thanks go out to our hard-working volunteers. We could not host these events without the many hours that our volunteers work to make the supper such a success. Special thanks goes out to Shirley Nixon, the person in charge of the Fall Supper and also to Bernadette Moroz without whom the supper could not have happened.
Two activities started up this month. Readers Theatre started up on Monday, October 16. Line dancing resumed on Wednesday, October 11. We will be hosting a Crib Tournament on November 17. More information will follow at a later date.
Several individuals have asked about 2024 memberships. They will go on sale in December and the cost is $15 for the year.
Our current schedule of activities is:
Bingo: every 1st, 3rd, and 5th Monday of the month. (Except January 1, 2024)
Exercise: Mondays and Wednesdays: 11:00-11:45 am
