President’s Winter Message
Another year has quickly gone by and the AGM is just around the corner (November 16, Saturday, from 12 to 2 pm). The Association has again managed our finances successfully as we have done in the past years, while managing to deliver our programs and special events at an affordable price to our members. As a non-profit society, the Association is able to apply grants from the governments and agencies to support our programs and special events.
For a number of years we’ve had renovating the centre’s kitchen on the drawing board. This project is finally moving ahead. Though we do not have a firm timeline at this point, it is expected that the work would start sometime in the first quarter next year. We have been forced to cancel some of our programs and events that use the kitchen in the first quarter. The Renfrew Collingwood Seniors Society has kindly agreed to host some of our workshops in their kitchen across the street. Our kitchen shutdown is only temporary to ensure that its upgrade can be done quickly. I am hopeful that you will all like it after its renovation. It should be noted that to keep the cost down we have had to scale back the project.
Amid the changes that happen around us; climate change, high density development and an aging population, the Association realizes that we have to work out strategies that can cope with these changes. I would like to receive your input in these areas. Please let us know your concerns or suggestions. If you do not know who we are please join us at the AGM. You can also reach us by email.
I wish you all an enjoyable holiday season and all the best in 2020.
