The Board of Directors is hosting a sit-down turkey Christmas dinner on Thursday, December 16, 2021 at noon in the dining room. The tickets for the December 16 Christmas sit-down dinner and “meal to go” are now SOLD OUT.  Meals-to-go will be available for pick up on December 16 between 1:30 and 2:15 PM.

The health and safety of all our returning members are a top priority for the Board of Directors.  While on the premises, it is important to wear a mask at all times (the exception is eating or drinking in the MP 1 room only), be doubly vaccinated, respond to a few COVID/Delta questions, and maintain a physical distance of at least two metres when socializing.

Please note that the Centre will be closed between December 24 and January 3rd inclusively for all of us to enjoy this wonderful Holiday Season with friends and family.  We look forward to seeing you in the new year on January 4, 2022.

The Board of Directors is pleased to inform its members that additional drop-in activities have now been added to the November calendar, with many of them reverting back to pre-COVID times.  Drop-in activities are to be prepaid at the Front deck reception before going to play an activity.
