Helping older adults live with dignity, respect and encouraging their involvement in the community.
As per the announcements from the Alberta Government and AHS on Saturday, February 26th, Bow Cliff's Board of Directors have decided that we will be observing the following protocols:
We will continue with our enhanced sanitization protocol and strongly recommend that everyone continue to wear masks inside the facility. Staff will continue to wear masks for the time being, to make all participants and members feel comfortable at Bow Cliff. Although the mask mandates (both provincial and city-wide) have been repealed, we will respect each individual's decision to wear a mask or not inside the facility. We encourage everyone to choose for themselves what their comfort level is while attending activities, programs and events at Bow Cliff and we appreciate everyone's understanding, support, and respect for all other members.
Again, if you are feeling ill, please stay home.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact John Yannitsos: email@example.com.

Many thanks to the Hellenic Seniors Society of Calgary for offering the very popular Greek picnic. Over 190 meals were served for members of Bow Cliff, Calgary Lawn Bowling Club and Greek seniors. $1,000 was donated to the Calgary Dream Centre from proceeds of the picnic.
Thank you also to all our volunteers, who keep Bow Cliff vibrant and beautiful. We very much appreciate your support!
