Our October opening was a success. Volunteers stepped forward to keep the kitchen open. We started with "coffee tea and muffins". After a few days we added "soup and sandwich". And recently we have enjoyed some hot meals too.
The Board thanks the volunteers who have made the opening possible.
Several activities are re-started already because we have a contact person and a written protocol for each one. The re-started activities are Canasta, Crafts, Euchre, Line Dancing, Mexican Train (Chicken Foot) and Pool.
The Board has decided to continue with the 3 days a week schedule - Monday, Wednesday & Friday, from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm.
Some of our six 2-1/2-hour volunteer shifts are open, such as the Front Desk Receptionist and Entrance Hall Greeter (10 to 12:30 and 12:30 to 3).
I thank Arlene Matkin for inspiring the Campbell River Mirror to send reporter Mike Davies over for a visit. He wrote about the re-opening of our Center in an article that was published on October 28. The article can be viewed here
Please know that the dedicated Directors on the Board have worked many hours to get the Center re-opened. We are all doing what we can to make sure everyone is safe.
I look forward to seeing you the next time you drop by.
Linda Tucker, President
Campbell River Seniors' Centre Society
